iSIP - Improving Boca Raton

Broad Vision and Advanced Planning

The Innovative Sustainable Infrastructure Program (iSIP), is a new initiative by the Boca Raton Utility Services Department. This long-term initiative uses technology and data to evaluate, prioritize and improve critical underground areas throughout the City. By using a mapping inventory system, areas will be identified and prioritized based on the age, location, and deterioration of water and sewer pipes and neighborhood roads.

Progressive Action

The Utility Services Department will coordinate with other City Departments on the timing and installation of underground work in conjunction with road resurfacing projects which will help save money and minimize disruption to residents. The Utility Services Department will install new, larger pipes to provide better water service while continuing to deliver clean, fresh City tap water to customers.

Neighborhoods will also benefit from improved roads, sidewalks, and stormwater systems. The program will maintain the stability of Boca Raton’s infrastructure by defending against potential failures through proactive, collaborative planning. 

Sustainable Future

Six neighborhoods in the City will be included in the first initial project phase with an estimated completion time of five years. Construction of the first two neighborhoods will be continuous, as a preventative maintenance program throughout the City for decades. 

Through this proactive and innovative approach, iSIP will enhance neighborhoods and improve the overall quality of life for residents in the City of Boca Raton.
