Public Utilities Capital Improvement Projects

Water and Wastewater Projects

The City of Raleigh's Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is one element in the City's long-term planning process. It links the City's Comprehensive Plan with long-term planning for infrastructure and operations. The City of Raleigh’s Public Utilities Department, now also known as "Raleigh Water", houses an internal CIP Division. This division studies major facility and equipment needs. Additionally, this division establishes priorities, reviews water and wastewater build plans, maintains or replaces portions of the water and wastewater systems, estimates fiscal resources, and schedules the development of major funded water  and wastewater projects. These items are the building blocks of the CIP. 

Raleigh Water is responsible for the water and wastewater infrastructure found in the City of Raleigh and the towns of Garner, Knightdale, Rolesville, Wake Forest, Wendell, and Zebulon. The CIP Division within the department completes infrastructure improvements for these major utility systems which include a vast network of pipes, pump stations, treatment plants, and storage facilities.
