An Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) will support our community's long-term resource planning and ensure adequate water supplies are available to meet existing and future water demands. It provides a summary of the variety of water resource policy and planning
issues for Redwood City, covering water demands, supplies, reliability, conservation and
The California Urban Water Management Planning Act requires all urban water
suppliers serving more than 3,000 customers or providing more than 3,000 acre-feet
of water annually to develop an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP or Plan),
update it every five years, and submit it to the Department of Water Resources.
In the broader view, the UWMP is only one component of the City’s broader
planning process, and it is not a singular driver for community policy making.
While the UWMP is not a “water master plan,” it should more narrowly
set policy direction for securing and protecting our water supply for today, and for the generations to come.
