(Victor Valley)– It’s that time of year–well, every fifth year for water agencies whose service area includes at least 3,000 connections, or water deliveries are equal to or greater than 3,000 acre-feet per year, to submit their Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) update as required by the Urban Water Management Planning Act of 1983.
MWA has been working since the spring of 2010, in conjunction with the Technical Advisory Committee (and consultant Kennedy/Jenks), to develop its 2010 update. Urban Water Management Plans are developed and implemented at the local level in order to ensure effective conservation, water use efficiency, and long-term supply reliability.
The public will have several opportunities to provide input about the UWMP during a 30-day public comment period between April 5 -May 5 when the draft becomes available for public review. To view the report you can visit the MWA website at www.mojavewater.org, or to see a hard copy visit any local library branch or MWA’s front office. Other opportunities to learn more about the UWMP are at the MWA Board of Directors workshop on April 14 or a public hearing at MWA on May 5, before adoption occurs on June 9.
