The Capital Improvement Plan is a statement of the City of Folsom’s policy regarding long-range physical development. It is the principal planning tool designed to develop and maintain infrastructure to support existing residences and businesses and future development.
The city’s CIP was prepared with the following goals:
- Ensure that existing infrastructure is maintained and replaced
- Provide for new capital projects to help meet the highest priority community growth needs
- Ensure that the CIP will be the blueprint for economic development in the community
- Develop and maintain recreational facilities
- Continue to form partnerships with citizens and businesses to leverage public funds and make Folsom a community of choice for living, working, and enjoying leisure activities
Active Construction Projects
The Oak Avenue Pump Station Peak Wet Weather Flow Relief Project includes the installation of approximately 1,500 lineal feet of 12-inch sewer force main parallel to the existing force main. The project also includes the installation of plug valves, potholing to verify high points along the City’s existing force main, replacing/relocating air release valves along the City’s existing force main as necessary and the installation of various sewer appurtenances. These improvements will help provide system redundancy, enhance the performance of the City’s sewer force main and provide the City with operational flexibility during emergency conditions.
Construction work along East Bidwell Street (between Oak Ave Pkwy and Clarksville Rd.) and on Oak Ave Parkway (between E. Bidwell St. and Blue Ravine Rd.) began in March 2021 and will continue through December 2022.
There will be impacts to traffic on Oak Avenue and E. Bidwell between August 31, 2022 and December 31, 2022.
For more information contact the Environmental and Water Resources Department (916.461.6177 or email@example.com).
The Natoma Alley (Stafford to Coloma) Rehabilitation and Replacement Project addresses ongoing maintenance problems and replaces approximately 5,000 lineal feet of sewer pipeline. The pipeline will rehabilitate existing pipeline in the alleys on either side of Natoma Street between Stafford and Coloma Street.
This project will reduce inflow and infiltration, minimize annual maintenance costs, and minimize the risk of sewer overflows. The existing sewer lines run under existing buildings and in backyards with limited to no access.
Work will begin in spring 2022 and will continue until spring of 2023. For more information contact Kelsie Gugino at firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-461-6166.
Along Baldwin Dam Road, which is located within the Ashland Water System, there are approximately 25 water services that need to be transferred over to a newer water distribution main also located in Baldwin Dam Road. In addition, there are 8 water main tie-in locations that need to occur. The water main tie-in locations will occur along Baldwin Dam Road at Valley Pines Drive, Mosswood Circle, South Creek Circle, and Baldwin Lake Circle. In addition, this project includes demolition of an existing decommissioned booster pump station.
Work began in August 2022 and will continue through spring of 2023. For more information contact Kelsie Gugino at email@example.com or 916-461-6166
This project involves the replacement and upsizing of the City's Water Treatment Plant (WTP) reclaimed backwash water pumps and pipeline. The EPA allows Water Agencies to recycle up to 10% of the WTP design capacity. Currently, the City only recycles 4% of its design capacity. This project will allow the City to recycle 10% of design capacity.
Work began in summer 2022 and will continue until the spring of 2023. For more information contact Kelsie Gugino at firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-461-6166.
