Capital improvement projects over the next 15 years, with estimated costs over $19 million, will address identified capacity and condition deficiencies. Responsible planning insures good service to customers will continue and that Brea can “pay as it goes.” Projects would only be undertaken as sufficient funds are collected to cover costs. This is preferable to using bonds, which generate long-term debt, as an ongoing funding mechanism to accomplish these needed projects.
Several high priority projects include replacement and up sizing of sewer mains along Brea Creek Channel and areas south of Imperial Highway. These projects are expected to be completed within the first five years after adoption of new rates.
