Scotts Valley Water District is required by June 30, 2016 to update its Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP), a document that provides a framework for long-term water planning and informs the public of strategic resource planning designed to ensure adequate water supplies for existing and future demands.
Last updated in 2010, the plan is designed to cover the timeline 2015 through 2035. The District hired Kennedy/Jenks Consultants to prepare the UWMP update in alignment with guidance issued by the California Department of Water Resources, which will review the plan.
The UWMP contains information about the public water system, current and projected water uses, current and projected sources of water available to the agency, water supply reliability, water shortage contingency planning and demand management measures. As such, the UWMP is designed to coordinate with General Plans set forth by the County of Santa Cruz and the City of Scotts Valley, as well as Integrated Regional Water Management Plan and Groundwater Management Plan.
