The effective and efficient operation, maintenance, and administration of the Encina System requires sound planning. Ensuring that EWA’s infrastructure remains reliable and cost effective in the future is an intensive process, as evidenced by the Comprehensive Asset Management Plan’s 1, 5, and 20-year capital improvement programs. An essential element of EWA’s planning is identifying future risks and opportunities within the context of regulatory and internal standards. Many of these risks and opportunities are identified in current planning documents, including the following:
Comprehensive Asset Management Plan
2040 Master Plan
The primary value of the 2040 Master Plan is that it considers both broad scenarios and specific tactics to guide future facility planning. These scenarios include expected conditions, as well as a set of selected alternatives.
Strategic Business Plan
EWA's Strategic Business Plan is focused on the future, addressing risks and opportunities likely to arise within the five year “planning horizon” (2018-2023). EWA is well-positioned to continue providing reliable services for the forseeable future.
