Notice of Public Hearings for the Draft 2020 Urban Water Management Plan, Draft Water Conservation Program/Water Shortage Contingency Plan, and Draft Addendum to the 2015 Urban Water Management Plan
Padre Dam Municipal Water District (District) has prepared its draft 2020 Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) in accordance with the California Urban Water Management Planning Act and the Water Conservation Act of 2009. The UWMP details the District’s water demand forecast, water supplies, water supplies reliability assessment, and water shortage contingency analysis. New to the 2020 UWMP is the requirement for the District to have a Water Shortage Contingency Plan (WSCP) that contains drought risk assessment methodology and process. The District has also prepared a Draft Addendum to the 2015 UWMP to demonstrate consistency with the Delta Plan Policy WR P1, Reduced Reliance on the Delta Through Improved Regional Water Self-Reliance. The 2015 UWMP is being amended for the sole purpose of reporting reduced reliance on the Delta.
