VIRTUAL PUBLIC MEETING: Draft 2020 Urban Water Management Plan Guidebook

September 16, 2020 @ 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm

DWR has released the Draft Urban Water Management Plan Guidebook 2020. The Guidebook provides urban water suppliers with technical assistance for preparing an UWMP. Use of the UWMP Guidebook is voluntary.

Every urban water supplier that either provides over 3,000 acre-feet of water annually or serves more than 3,000 urban connections is required to submit an UWMP. Suppliers must submit 2020 UWMPs electronically to DWR by July 1, 2021.

This workshop is an opportunity for the public to comment on the Draft Guidebook. DWR will present a brief overview of the major changes to the Guidebook since the 2015 version and solicit feedback and comments.

Comments on the Draft Guidebook will be accepted through September 21, 2020 and can be submitted in person at the workshop or sent to
