The Urban Water Management Planning Act requires every “urban water supplier” to prepare and adopt an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) and periodically update that plan at least once every five years on or before December 31, in years ending in five and zero. Pursuant to Section 10621(d) of the UWMP Act, each urban water supplier shall update and submit its 2015 UWMP by July 1, 2016 to the California Department of Water Resources. The UWMP is a planning document and a source document to direct urban water suppliers to evaluate and compare their water supply and reliability to their existing water conservation efforts.
As an urban water supplier, Azusa Light & Water (ALW) is required pursuant to Section 10620(d)(2) of the UWMP Act to coordinate with water management agencies, relevant public agencies and other water suppliers on the preparation of the UWMP.
On June 27, 2016, the ALW Utility Board adopted the 2015 and the updated 2010 Urban Water Management Plans.
