In 2008, Monte Vista Water District began implementation of a comprehensive plan that was developed to update water production, storage and distribution infrastructure. With some of the District's facilities more than 70 years old, there is a great need for rehabilitation or replacement.
The Facilities Master Plan outlines various capital improvement projects to be completed over a 30-year time frame at a cost of approximately $100 million. A comprehensive financial master plan has been developed to provide funding mechanisms for on-going implementation of the plan and to define on-going service rates.
The improvements to the water production and water distribution systems are resulting in:
Increased efficiency of operations
Reduction of long term costs
Improvement of water quality and water reliability
