Notice of Public Hearing

For 2020 Urban Water Management Plan and

Availability of Draft Plan for Review

The Urban Water Management Planning Act requires every “urban water supplier[1]” to prepare and adopt an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) and periodically update that plan at least once every five years.  Pursuant to Section 10621(d) of the UWMP Act, each urban water supplier shall update and submit its 2020 UWMP by July 1, 2021 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. 

San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District (San Gabriel Valley MWD) hereby releases its Draft 2020 Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) for public review. The UWMP will be available through June 24, 2021:
