Water Management Plan

2015 Urban Water Management Plan


The City of Watsonville's 2015 Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) revises the 2010 UWMP. The 2015 UWMP provides information on the present and future water demands and supplies and provides an assessment of the City's water resources needs. The 2015 UWMP will act as a guide to maintain and sustain efficient use of urban water supplies, to describe and evaluate existing and potentially available sources of water supply, to promote conservation programs and policies, and to plan out strategies for responding to water shortages and drought conditions.

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) summarizes the status of all plans submitted statewide. DWR can use these plans as a resource to set targets, such as to track progress toward decreasing daily per capita urban water use throughout the state.

City of Watsonville Water Operations Division staff completed the 2015 Urban Water Management Plan and the City Council approved it on June 14, 2016 at the City Council Meeting.
