Water Utility Projects
The Water Utility Engineering & Planning divisions are responsible for new development and Capital Improvements in the water service areas. This includes reviewing plans built by developers. It also includes managing and administering contracts for designing and building new water facilities that are installed by the Water Utility for existing system improvements or expansion related projects. In addition, it is responsible to operate and update the Geographic Information System in coordination with the Information Technology Department.
The New Development Section is responsible for reviewing Water Improvement Plans for new development and assisting with planning for future water system expansion. Once all Water Utility standards are met, the plans are approved for construction. This sections also inspects all water facilities that are constructed by developers prior to final acceptance and operation of those facilities. This section also assists in the preparation and development of water system master plans. These facilities include primarily pipelines and appurtenances, such as valves and hydrants, but can also include water storage reservoirs and booster pump stations.
The New Development Section also prepares Line Extension Agreements (LEA) and administers those LEAs and, when applicable, associated protected mains. When required, the New Development Section works closely with the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality to acquire Approval of Construction prior to placing new water facilities in service. Coordination with Planning and Zoning, Public Works and Building Safety Departments is critical to this water improvement plan process and to ensure quality construction and that adequate water facilities are constructed in accordance with approved standards as our community grows.
