The COMB Infrastructure Improvement Plan (IIP) formalizes the strategy for implementation of capital projects and programs needed to carry out the goals and policy objectives of the Board. The IIP is organized and structured to identify and prioritize rehabilitation projects necessary to protect, improve, and sustain a reliable source of water conveyed from the Cachuma Project to the South Coast communities of Santa Barbara County.
Projects outlined in the IIP have been identified based on U.S. Bureau of Reclamation inspection recommendations, COMB asset inventory analysis, and other staff observations and recommendations. The identification of a project within the five-year plan does not guarantee construction. The initiation of any project requires Board of Director’s approval for a project to advance to design and ultimately construction. Additionally, the Board of Directors has the ongoing ability to review and revise projects based upon unforeseen conditions, priorities, and financial resources.
