California law requires that the City of Santa Clara review and update its Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) every five years. In addition, the Water Conservation Bill of 2009 required the City to adopt water use goals which would help contribute to an overall 20% reduction in urban per capita water use statewide by 2020.
2015 UWMP Update
The purpose of this document is to update the information in the City's existing 2010 UWMP. The UWMP provides an overview of the City's current and long-term water supplies, future water needs of the City, and the City's water conservation programs.
Following a public hearing on November 22, 2016 the City Council adopted the 2015 UWMP.
The 2015 UWMP Update is available for public review.
