The UWMP Act (CA Water Code §§10608-10656) requires MPWD to update its UWMP every 5 years

Urban Water Management Report cover image

MPWD staff and its consulting team are making progress on the District’s 2020 UWMP Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP). The UWMP will be effective for five years through 2025. The plan also includes an updated Water Shortage Contingency Plan (WSCP). Once the draft copy is released, both documents will be made available to the community for review and a virtual public hearing will follow. The UWMP is a state requirement and prepared in response to the UWMP Act. The intent of the UWMP is to provide the Department of Water Resources (DWR) and the general public with information on present and future water supply and demand and to provide an assessment of water resources needed. It also serves the purpose of helping ratepayers better understand our water system, service area, water reliability and contingency planning.

Watch for notice detailing further instructions on how to access, review, comment, and attend a future public hearing on the 2020 UWMP.

  • Cover of water capacity charge update report

    Water Capacity Charges Update

    MPWD levies an Existing Facilities Charge on new or expanded connections as a condition of development. This charge was established to recover the cost of capacity in District facilities benefitting new development. The current fee was adopted in 1993 and has not been updated in over 20 years. This report refers to this type of development impact fee as a “capacity charge,” in line with terminology used in California Government Code. New connections also pay a Meter Charge to recover the cost of the water meter and a Service Line Charge to pay for the District’s costs of installing the service line and making the physical connection to the water main.
