Capital Projects

Capital projects are special in that they meet a certain set of guidelines, either by price range or life expectancy of the project. For example, a line replacement could last a few decades. That would be considered a “capital project”. Typically these projects are scheduled as they tend to require more funds; however, there are times where repairs, replacements, etc. become necessary right away.

Other projects are expensed from the Operations & Maintenance Budgets.

What is a manhole anyway?

“Manholes are vertical underground confined spaces used by utility personnel as a point of access to a sewer system. Sewer systems are built underground with pipes that carry waste from homes and other buildings to a place of treatment or disposal.”
