Columbus approves capital improvement plan for water infrastructure upgrades

On 2 May 2016, the Columbus City Council approved the city’s US$1 billion 2016 capital improvement plan (CIP) budget. More than two-thirds of the budget, surpassing US$670 million, is dedicated to water & sewer infrastructure upgrades. Central to the forecasted infrastructure spending will be major investments to mitigate sanitary sewer and stormwater overflows.

Columbus water utility upgrades stem from the city’s longstanding negotiations with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to address sanitary sewer and combined stormwater overflows.
