Capital Construction Projects

The Long Beach Water Department installs, maintains and improves the city's water distribution and sanitary sewer systems through ongoing capital construction projects.

Like most urbanized cities throughout the country, the majority of Long Beach's water and wastewater distribution systems were laid in the early 1900's.  After several decades of use, many of the city's 915 miles of water and 765 miles of sewer lines are nearing the end of their useful service life.

A city can have no greater need for dependable infrastructure than that of its water and wastewater distribution systems.  Its direct effect on our city's quality of life, public health and economy attests to its importance. Through proactive and prudent investment and the use of state-of-the-art equipment, our capital construction projects will continue to provide our customers with the highest level of infrastructure reliability, efficiency, and quality.
