The public is also invited to submit comments on SCV Water’s draft Urban Water Management Plan update. This is another component of SCV Water’s current planning efforts to ensure long-term water reliability. This plan addresses water supply forecast for current customers and future growth, how to expand recycled water and conservation, water shortage response actions, an assessment of water supplies both local and imported and how climate change could affect water supplies so the agency can ensure a steady supply for customers.
In addition, based on new guidance from the State of California Department of Water Resources, SCV Water has also prepared an addendum to the 2015 UWMP. The same data will be available in the 2020 UWMP, but for completeness the 2015 UWMP has been amended to include this data as well.
The 30-day public comment period on this important plan is open through May 26, 2021 and will be followed a Board of Directors virtual public hearing and actions on May 27 at 6:30 p.m. Comments can be submitted through the website or sent via U.S. Mail.
