Capital Improvement Projects

Capital Improvement Projects are designed and inspected by Central Arkansas Water Engineering Department, which could include pump stations, water storage tanks, improvements to pumping facilities or water mains installed by a Contractor or Central Arkansas Water distribution forces. These projects may be generated by other governmental agencies or as part of a routine main replacement schedule.

Engineering Technicians, with oversight from staff engineers, manage and inspect all capital, public, and private projects involving the construction and installation of potable water facilities

All system improvement projects must comply with Central Arkansas Water (CAW) Standard Pipeline Materials and Construction Specifications. Prior to acceptance of main installations into the water distribution system, samples must be collected and analyzed by CAW’s laboratory to ensure that the water is safe for consumption.
