Urban Water Management Plan
The most recent update of the City of Napa Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) is currently being finalized. A draft will be available here for public review beginning July 1, in advance of a Public Hearing at the 3:30 pm City Council Meeting on Tuesday, July 18, 2017.
NOTE: The UWMP Public Hearing date listed in the June 2017 issue of Napa Valley Marketplace Magazine was incorrect (June 20).
On 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.

Using data gathered in the 2050 Napa Valley Water Resources Study, the City of Napa UWMP 2005 was prepared according to the requirements of the Urban Water Management Planning Act. It included sections on our service area's climate and population, water sources and their reliability through 2030, water use by customer type through 2030, and demand management (water conservation) measures. Supply and demand were projected for a normal water year, a single dry year, and multiple dry years. Recycled water and other alternative supplies were discussed, along with the City's Water Shortage Contingency Plan.
On January 17, 2006, the City Council conducted a public hearing and adopted, by Resolution R2006 17, City of Napa UWMP 2005. It was reviewed by the California Department of Water Resources (DWR). Following City submission of requested addenda, DWR deemed the UWMP complete on July 13, 2007.
