sq-shakerEWA’s investments in infrastructure are guided by its ongoing Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The objective of the program is to improve facilities, ensure highly reliable and cost-effective performance, and increase efficiency.

Each year the scope of the CIP is set through our formal Encina Comprehensive Asset Management Plan (E-CAMP), which prioritizes and funds needed physical improvements. A recent CIP project that upgraded the solids treatment facilities saves the agency about two million dollars per year. The current E-CAMP document can be found below.


As an environmental leader, EWA provides reliable and fiscally responsible wastewater services to the communities we serve while optimizing the use of renewable resources.

Together, we are a model of excellence and innovation.
