An affordable and strategic approach to achieving JCW's mission of protecting the environment, serving our customers and enhancing our community.
JCW's 25-Year Integrated Plan:
Renewing Life's Essential Resource
What is Integrated Planning?
An Integrated Plan (IP) supports strategic and financial planning by examining an organization’s existing resources and future needs.
It is a thoughtful, equitable, and collaborative process for developing a long-term investment plan that:
Promotes efficient use of resources and improved system reliability.
Balances multiple system priorities such as serving growth areas, preserving human and environmental health, and maintaining a high quality of life for our customers.
Minimizes unnecessary social and environmental impacts.
Integrated Planning Process
JCW began the IP process in 2019 and identified the need for $2.1 billion (in 2018 dollars) in future infrastructure projects over a 25-year period. These projects include both individual capital projects and ongoing system renewal and maintenance efforts. These capital investments will allow JCW to address growing customer demands and meet US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) requirements.
In addition to identifying capital projects and system improvements, JCW’s 25-year IP focuses on the personnel, communication and planning resources that are needed to support and deliver those activities.

Enhancing Our Community and Focusing on the Future
Water is a crucial element in our everyday lives, but population growth and intensifying weather events are changing the way water resources are operated and maintained. At present, Johnson County Wastewater provides sanitary sewer services for more than 500,000 people in Johnson County, KS. This requires JCW to operate and maintain a large, complex system while thinking toward future investments that affordably enhance the resiliency of our infrastructure and maintain regulatory compliance.
