Urban Water Management Plan


Every five years, urban water suppliers in California are required by State law to prepare an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP). Valley Water meets the definition of an urban water wholesaler and is currently preparing its 2020 UWMP. Valley Water’s 2020 UWMP documents current and projected water supplies and demands over the next 25 years during normal and drought years, as well as water shortage contingency planning and conservation efforts. The plan provides an overall picture of past, current, and future water conditions and management in Santa Clara County.

As part of the 2020 UWMP, Valley Water expanded its Water Shortage Contingency Plan (WSCP) to a standalone document to establish actions and procedures for managing water shortages. In addition, Valley Water is appending to its 2015 UWMP through an addendum to meet the requirements of the Delta Plan Policy WR P1.

Valley Water’s Board of Directors will hold a public hearing on June 8, 2021, at 1 p.m. to allow interested members of the public to participate in the review process. Valley Water’s 2020 UWMP, WSCP, and the Reduced Delta Reliance addendum are available below for public review. For more information about the public hearing or this plan, contact Jing Wu at (408) 630-2330 or [email protected].


Valley Water’s 2015 UWMP is available below. Once the Board of Directors approves the 2020 UWMP, it will be uploaded.
