Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Project Management
DUSWM has an approved Capital Improvement Program (CIP) project list for the next 6 years which includes water and sewer projects and solid waste projects. These projects involve:
New water and wastewater treatment plants
Rehabilitation of aging infrastructure
Water transmission mains
Water storage tanks
Transfer station (and any other solid waste project)
The CIP projects are typically not designed by DUSWM, but are contracted via private engineering consultants. In many instances, these design contracts are coordinated for various local, state and federal approvals.
Project management focuses primarily on the quality, cost and schedule of each CIP project. Certain projects require significant public involvement and are coordinated by each respective project manager in the department.
