The Urban Water Management Planning Act requires every “urban water supplier” to prepare and adopt an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) and periodically update that plan at least once every five years on or before December 31, in years ending in five and zero. Pursuant to Section 10621(d) of the UWMP Act, each urban water supplier shall update and submit its 2015 UWMP by July 1, 2016 to the California Department of Water Resources. The UWMP is a planning document and a source document to direct urban water suppliers to evaluate and compare their water supply and reliability to their existing water conservation efforts.
As an urban water supplier, SGVMWD is required pursuant to Section 10620(d)(2) of the UWMP Act to coordinate with water management agencies, relevant public agencies and other water suppliers on the preparation of the UWMP.
On June 13, 2016, the Board of Directors of the San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District adopted the 2015 Urban Water Management Plan.
Section 10617 of the Urban Water Management Planning Act states, ““Urban Water Supplier” means a supplier, either publicly or privately owned, providing water for municipal purposes either directly or indirectly to more than 3,000 customers or supplying more than 3,000 acre-feet of water annually.
