Since the completion of Black & Veatch's study, CIRDWC discussions about regionalization have been ongoing. The Technical Advisory Committee, consisting of technical experts from member utilities, was formed to continue discussing the technical aspects of regionalization. The Technical Advisory Committee has worked with Des Moines Water Works, as the region's wholesale supplier, to develop population and demand projections through the year 2035, and Des Moines Water Works currently has underway a long-range plan to identify the infrastructure necessary to meet these regional demands. This long-range plan is expected to be completed by April 1, 2017.
