2010 Update

uwmp 2010.jpgOn June 21, 2011, the City Council conducted a public hearing and adopted, by Resolution R2011 95, the City of Napa UWMP 2010 Update.  It was reviewed by the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and deemed complete on November 10, 2011.  As an urban water supplier serving more than 3,000 connections or 3,000 acre-feet annually, the City of Napa is required to submit an updated UWMP to DWR every five years.  The plan is a summary of water supplies, demands, conservation, and overall water service reliability for the next 25 years.  The 2010 Update (Chapter 5) includes the City's compliance strategy for the Water Conservation Act of 2009 (SBx7-7) which seeks a statewide 20% reduction in urban per capita water use by 2020.
