Urban Water Management Plan

The California Urban Water Management Planning Act (Water Code sections 10610 et seq.) mandates that every supplier providing water for municipal purposes to more that 3,000 customers or supplying more than 3,000 acre feet of water annually, prepare an Urban Water Management Plan, at least once every five years.


On July 1, 2011, Riverside's Board of Public Utilities held a public hearing on the draft Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) prepared by Riverside Public Utilities (RPU) Department. The City Council adopted RPU's 2010 UWMP on July 12, 2011.

RPU's 2010 UWMP includes discussion of the following:

  • Existing and planned sources of water supplies
  • Plans for conservation and efficient use of water
  • Assessment and reliability of water supplies.
