Wastewater collection and treatment infrastructure requires continual maintenance and replacement due to the caustic nature of sanitary sewage. Long-term planning is therefore necessary for the ongoing operational and financial health of the utility. The Authority’s planning is divided into two major points of emphasis — the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and Rehabilitation or what is sometimes referred to as the Renewal and Replacement of Assets.
In order to plan system upgrades and improvements (renewal or replacement of the old and addition of new infrastructure), Authority staff goes to great lengths to evaluate the existing condition of collection and conveyance (the smaller lines of the system), force mains (the larger sewer lines) and pump stations, as well as the wastewater treatment facilities (the two water reclamation facilities).
The Authority maintains a multi-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) which provides a roadmap for the Authority to plan for long-term capital needs. Typical CIP expenditures are categorized as corrective measures, system repairs, system upgrades such as advancements to pump stations and sewer lines, and maintenance and upgrades for the Rockaway and Larry B. Turner/Line Creek wastewater treatment plants.
