While first incorporated in 1952, Foothill Municipal Water District (FMWD or District) did not complete the necessary infrastructure to connect to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) until 1954. With most of the current distribution system showing signs of age, extensive rehabilitation and improvement to the system is required to continue meeting demands for imported water. The goal of the District’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is to fulfill the FMWD mission statement and provide water service reliability to its member agencies during normal conditions, droughts and emergencies.
Planning and scheduling repairs before a failure occurs is more cost-effective than paying for the damage on an emergency basis.
Additionally, FMWD continues to explore other opportunities for supply reliability such as through the development of recycled water, capture of stormwater and construction of emergency interconnections with other agencies.
Details on future projects and bidding opportunities are detailed in the attachment below.
