Urban Water Management Plan/Water Shortage Contingency Plan

The Urban Water Management Act (UWMPA) became part of the California Water Code (CWC) with the passage of Assembly Bill 797 during the 1983-1984 regular session of the California Legislature. The CWC requires every urban water supplier providing water for municipal purposes to more than 3,000 customers, either directly or indirectly, or supplying more than 3,000 acre-feet of water annually to adopt and submit an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) every five years to the California Department of Water Resources (DWR). The specific planning requirements are in the CWC Division 6, Part 2.6 Urban Water Management Planning.

The purpose of the UWMP is to maintain efficient use of urban water supplies, continue to promote conservation programs and policies, ensure that sufficient water supplies are available for future beneficial use, and provide a mechanism for response during water drought conditions.
