Introduction: Urban Water Management Plans
The State of California requires an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) to be submitted every five years by the State’s urban water suppliers. All suppliers who provide more than 3000 acre feet of water or who serve more than 3000 connections are “required to assess the reliability of …water sources over a 20-year planning horizon considering normal, dry, and multiple dry years.” (State’s UWMP website.)
The City of Santa Rosa, and other major cities that contract with SCWA for their water supply (Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Sonoma) are working together to gather information on their water use and future capacity needs as included in their General Plan projections in order to prepare their individual 2015 UWMPs. The SCWA is working on determining projected water availability for the coming five years that considers conservation and global warming, among other things. When available, those documents will be posted (or link provided) on this website.
