The San Gorgonio Pass Water Agency (“SGPWA”) 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 communication is to provide you with notification that SGPWA has initiated its 2020 UWMP process.
You will also be notified of the public hearing date, time, and location (anticipated to be held before June 2021), and have access to a draft copy of the 2020 UWMP for review prior to that hearing that will be posted on SGPWA’s website. The public hearing will allow: (1) community input regarding SGPWA ‘s water supply reliability, (2) consideration of the economic impacts of complying with CWC statutes governing the UWMP and (3) SGPWA’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan.
If you have any questions regarding this notification or SGPWA’s UWMP update process, please contact Lance Eckhart at 951.845.2577 or fill out the Contact Form
