San Juan Water District is working on several large capital improvement projects to meet state and federal regulations. These projects include a variety of infrastructure repairs and new construction projects which are described in our Capital Improvement Plan. These projects are funded by water rates paid by customers throughout our Wholesale and Retail service areas, property taxes and state and federal grants.
SJWD personnel are constantly looking for ways to reduce cost and maintain quality service, including with our CIP program.
San Juan regularly assesses the condition of its pipeline infrastructure and replaces lines when they become too expensive to repair. New pipelines can also be installed as part of a development project. Pipeline extensions for new development are funded for by the developer, not by existing customers.
Treatment Plant Projects
A majority of the existing treatment plant was built in 1979 and SJWD is focused on necessary equipment and process replacements and improvements. These replacement and improvement projects are identified, planned, budgeted, designed and constructed by SJWD when necessary. Many projects are done in-house using Engineering personnel to design, and Treatment personnel to install, thereby saving our customers on costs.
