2020 Urban Water Management Plan Notice

The District is preparing its 2020 Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) as required by the California Water Code (CWC).  This effort must be completed by July 1, 2021.  CWC Section 10642 encourages “active involvement of diverse social, cultural, and economic elements of the populations” in preparing the UWMP and Section 10621(b) requires 60 day advance notice regarding the preparation of the UWMP.  The purpose of this announcement is to provide notification that the District has initiated its 2020 UWMP process.

Notification of the public hearing date, time, and location (anticipated to be held in June 2021), and access to a draft copy of the 2020 UWMP for review prior to that hearing will be posted on the District’s website.  The public hearing will allow: (1) community input regarding the District’s water supply reliability, (2) consideration of the economic impacts of complying with CWC statutes governing the UWMP and (3) the District’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan.

If you have any questions regarding this notification or the Carmichael Water District’s UWMP update process, please contact Chris Nelson at (916) 483-2452 or by email at chris@carmichaelwd.org.
