2020 Urban Water Management Plan
The Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) is required to adopt an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) every five years to comply with California’s Urban Water Management Planning Act. The State required long-term plan details MWDOC’s water demand forecast, local and imported water supplies, water supplies reliability assessment, and shortage contingency analysis. New to the 2020 UWMPs is the requirement for agencies to have a Water Shortage Contingency Plan (WSCP) that contains a drought risk assessment methodology and process. The drought risk assessment evaluates demands and supplies over an assumed five dry year period to help agencies plan for any shortage actions or response that may need to be considered to close their water supplies gap. MWDOC’s 2020 UWMP, 2020 WSCP, and 2015 Addendum were adopted at the May 19, 2021 MWDOC Board of Directors Meeting and subsequently submitted to the California Department of Water Resources for review.
