Water Authority Board Approves 2020 Urban Water Management Plan and Two Other Documents

June 24, 2021

The Water Authority’s Board of Directors adopted a resolution to approve the 2020 Urban Water Management Plan, Water Shortage Contingency Plan, and Appendix M Addendum to the 2015 Urban Water Management Plan at its May 27, 2021 meeting. The documents were released for a 60-day public comment period on March 8, 2021. A public hearing on the documents was held on March 25, with written comments due by May 6. The documents will be submitted to the state Department of Water Resources no later than July 1, 2021.

The state-mandated 2020 Urban Water Management Plan highlights how regional investments in a “water portfolio approach” to supply management and a sustained emphasis on water-use efficiency mean that San Diego County will continue to have sufficient water supplies through the 2045 planning horizon – even during multiple dry years. As San Diego County and California face increasingly unpredictable climate patterns, the Water Authority will continue to be a reliable wholesale water supplier for the region.
