Water agencies throughout the state are required by the California Department of Water Resources to prepare Urban Water Management Plans every five years in order to show that adequate water supplies are available to meet existing and future water demands. OMWD’s 2015 plan demonstrates water supply reliability over the next 25 years in conjunction with regional plans developed by the San Diego County Water Authority and Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
OMWD’s 2015 plan was due to California’s Department of Water Resources by July 1, 2016. A public hearing on OMWD’s draft 2015 Urban Water Management Plan was held during the May 25, 2016 Board of Directors meeting. The final plan was adopted during the June 15, 2016 Board of Directors meeting.
