Urban Water Management Plans (UWMPs) are prepared by California's urban water suppliers to support their long-term resource planning and ensure adequate water supplies are available to meet existing and future water demands.
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 assess the reliability of its water sources over a 20-year planning horizon, and report its progress on 20% reduction in per-capita urban water consumption by the year 2020, as required in the Water Conservation Bill of 2009, SBX7-7.
The 2015 Urban Water Management Plan was approved by the City Council on June 7, 2016. The document was forwarded to the Department of Water Resources on June 15, 2016 for final approval. A hard copy of the document is available for viewing at City Hall, 2nd Floor, 1 Plaza, Patterson, CA 95363.
