Water & Wastewater Capital Improvement Plan Outlook: Top 100 U.S. Utility Profiles
Published: September 10, 2019 Content info:

New Data Insight available now. (Report included with US & Canada Municipal Insight service subscription).

Over the 10-year period from 2019 to 2028, total capital expenditures (CAPEX) for the top 100 U.S. utilities are projected to total over US$207 billion. These 100 utilities serve over 86.8 million for water, 86.6 million for wastewater, and 40.7 million for stormwater (representing 28% percent of the water market and 49% of the wastewater market). From population growth to the proliferation of digital technologies to climate change, a host of market factors are impacting where utilities spend their dollars.

Bluefield's Data Insight details the strategies and priorities for the top 100 U.S. Utilities.


  • Profiles of top 100 Utilities across the U.S.
  • Capital Improvement Plans for water, sewer, and stormwater infrastructure
  • Change in planned CAPEX spend from 2018 to 2019 planning cycles
  • Per capita CAPEX for Water & Wastewater
  • Spend broken down by water, wastewater and stormwater


  • How much do major utilities across the U.S. plan to spend on CAPEX for the next 10 years?
  • Which segments expect the most spend and how has this changed from last year?
  • Which infrastructure asset classes (i.e. plants, pipes, pumps, etc.) are slated to see the most investment over the coming years?
  • Which utilities are poised for the largest expenditures?
  • How do utility per capita spending patterns vary?


  • Wastewater represents the lion's share of utility CAPEX.
  • Utilities are investing more in water infrastructure, dollars per capita are on the rise.
  • Utilities vary in the services they provide, and therefore their CAPEX spend also varies.
