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.
Valley Water’s Board of Directors will hold a public hearing on June 8, 2021, at 1:00 pm to allow interested members of the public to participate in the review process. The draft plan will be made available for public review in Mid-May. The plan adoption is scheduled for the same day, after the close of the public hearing. After the public hearing and plan adoption, Valley Water’s 2020 UWMP will be submitted, as required, to the Department of Water Resources by July 1, 2021.
Valley Water’s 2015 UWMP is available below. Once the Board of Directors approves the 2020 UWMP, it will be uploaded.
