The City is required to update its Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) every five years per State law. The UWMP is prepared to:
Ensure the efficient use of available water supplies
Describe and evaluate the existing water system and historical and projected water use
Evaluate current and projected water supply reliability
Describe and evaluate demand management measures
Provide water shortage contingency plans as required by State law
By preparing the 2015 UWMP, the City continues its commitment to intelligent planning and management of its water supplies. The 2015 UWMP also includes information on the City's progress towards the 20% by 2020 conservation requirement of the Water Conservation Bill of 2009 (SB X7-7). The draft 2015 UWMP was available for public review on April 11, 2016 and written comments were accepted through May 25, 2016.
