As an urban water supplier, the City of Napa is required to submit an update of its Urban Water Management Plan to the State Department of Water Resources every five years. A 2015 Urban Water Management Plan Amendment, the 2020 Urban Water Management Plan, and the Water Shortage Contingency Plan have now been drafted and are available for public review beginning December 7, 2021, on the City Water Division web page, www.cityofnapa.org/water, and at the following locations: City of Napa Utilities Department, 1700 Second Street, Suite 100, City of Napa Office of the City Clerk, 955 School Street, and Napa City-County Library, 580 Coombs Street.
The 2015 plan is being amended to meet requirements of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Reform Act of 2009. The 2020 plan is a new summary of City water supplies, demands, and conservation, and overall water service reliability through 2045. The Water Shortage Contingency Plan is a stand-alone document that guides the City through supply shortfalls up to 50% or more.
A public hearing of adoption will be held on December 21, 2021, at or after 6:30 pm in the City Council Chambers, City Hall, 955 School Street, Napa. Written comments should be directed to the City Council through the City Clerk at PO Box 660, Napa, California, 94559-0660 or by email to [email protected].
