Civiltec Celebrates Its 30th Anniversary!
Civiltec 30 Years To celebrate Civiltec's 30th anniversary of doing business, we asked some of our longtime employees and Civiltec Founder Rick Shroads to share a few words on their memorable moments and what they look forward to in the future.

New Master Plans for Kachina Village Improvement District 30% Complete
Kachina Village Improvement District Civiltec recently completed a 30% document submittal for new Water and Wastewater Master Plans for the Kachina Village Improvement District (KVID) in January 2016. The purpose of the Master Plans is to establish a realistic and affordable plan of operations for the next 20-year horizon as it relates to the community's water and wastewater system.
Recap of our 2016 Day at the Races 
2016 Day at the Races
Our 2016 Day at the Races event was our largest ever. Nearly 300 people-employees, clients and their families-gathered at Santa Anita Park under clear, blue skies to help us celebrate 30 years of operation! 

"This was a huge turnout--we even spilled out of the main pavilion into the grass area," said Civiltec President David Byrum. "It was great to see so many people sporting Civiltec polo shirts with our 30th anniversary logo, and that so many clients and their families took time to come support Civiltec and engage with us."
