Citrus Heights Water District Customer Advisory Committee
Helping Plan the Future of Water In Our Community
Citrus Heights Water District has been serving our customers for 100 years, and we have always worked hard to plan for the future water needs of our communities. In this spirit of stewardship, CHWD has reached out to the community for input on the best means for re-investing in our system’s infrastructure. Most of the District’s water mains were installed between the 1960s and 1980s, and water meters were installed between the 1980s and 2000s. These are key components of our water system, and many of these components will soon approach the end of their useful lives.
With this in mind, CHWD recently initiated two major planning efforts: The Project 2030 Water Main Replacement Study and a strategy for replacing the water meters in the District service area. These efforts will focus on developing strategies for funding and replacing our water mains and water meters and will include evaluations of alternative options for our District that will consider the larger capital improvement program requirements of the District.
To ensure that the alternatives considered address the needs and input from the communities we serve, CHWD formed a Customer Advisory Committee (CAC). This committee worked with a technical team to consider the water main replacement options while analyzing key financial and technical issues that promote equity of funding between today's and future CHWD customers. The CAC presented its recommendation to the CHWD Board of Directors on June 8, 2021. The Board approved the CAC's recommendation and developed a plan to fund work through 2080.
