Watershed Management Capital Improvement Plan for 2021 through 2030

Phone Number: 770-621-7208

PURPOSE: To consider approving the Department of Watershed Management (DWM) Capital Improvement Plan for the years 2021 through 2030 (CIP 2021).

The need to sustain a safe drinking water supply and distribution system and to adequately collect, convey, and treat wastewater to protect the County's watersheds requires that the County's water and wastewater infrastructure be properly maintained, operated, and managed. In addition, the growth and development of the County as well as the importance of protecting human health and the environment necessitates the need to continuously extend and renew the water and wastewater infrastructure.

Through a multi-year effort of planning and prioritization by DWM, a new Capital Improvement Plan has been developed. The Plan was developed based on newly developed computer-based hydraulic models of both the water and wastewater systems, the recently completed Comprehensive Water and Wastewater Master Plans through 2050, and a documented, detailed, inclusive and data-driven CIP Prioritization Process (see attachments).

The CIP 2021 includes projects throughout Watershed Management's systems including at the Scott Candler Water Treatment Plant, the water distribution system, wastewater collection system (including projects associated with the Consent Decree), at the Snapfinger and Pole Bridge Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plants as well as ongoing costs such as intergovernmental agreements, emergency and annual contracts. Approximately 1/3rd of the CIP 2021 program is for projects contained in the Consent Decree.

The proposed resolution has been approved as to form by the Law Department.
