Capital Improvement Program

 MSD’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) includes capital projects - in the planning, design/right-of-way or construction phase - that help maintain or improve MSD’s wastewater collection and treatment system. These include:

  • Sanitary and storm sewer projects
  • Treatment plant projects, including odor control
  • Other projects such as facility improvements, planning studies and watershed evaluations

MSD publishes an annual CIP book that includes the current year and projections for the following four years. MSD’s CIP includes wet weather projects required by our federal Consent Decrees to reduce sewer overflows, as well as asset management projects necessary to rebuild our aging sewer system.

CIP projects are rated and prioritized each year to meet the various needs of MSD and its ratepayers. Projects can be generated through a number of sources, including in-house, other governmental agencies, environmental concerns, and the public.

The City of Cincinnati manages all procurement for MSD and is responsible for contracting with professional design engineering firms and construction firms where needed for CIP projects. For more information, visit Related Links to the right.
