The purpose of the Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) is to provide the State of California’s Department of Water Resources an assessment of the City's present and future water resources needs. Specifically, this document provides water supply planning for a 25-year planning period in 5-year increments. The plan identifies water supplies for existing and future demands; quantifies water demands during a normal year, single-dry year and multiple-dry years; and identifies supply reliability under the three hydrological conditions.
The Urban Water Management Planning Act of 1983, California Water Code 10610 to 10656, mandates that every urban water supplier providing water for municipal purposes to more than 3,000 customers or supplying more than 3,000 acre-feet of water annually prepare, adopt and file an UWMP every five years, in years ending in six and one.
