Master Plans

GLWA’s Master Plans cover both our fresh water and wastewater operations for the next 50 years. This takes into account population growth, commercial and industrial needs, as well as the increased cost to maintain such systems. These documents serve as the basis for GLWA’s continued mission to deliver the best services to all of the communities we serve. The most recent Water Master Plan was prepared in 2015.

GLWA is championing an update of the Wastewater Master Plan and working with its partners to identify the issues and areas of opportunity for collaborative action.
