Notice is hereby given that at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 22, 2021, via web-conference and livestream, accessible via YouTube at: https://bit.ly/YouTubeSBWater, the SBMWD's Water Board will conduct a public hearing to receive public comments and consider adoption of the Draft 2020 Upper Santa Ana Watershed Integrated Regional Urban Water Management Plan (2020 IRUWMP) and Draft Water Shortage Contingency Plan (WSCP). Following the public hearing, the SBMWD's Water Board may adopt the Draft 2020 IRUWMP and Draft WSCP with recommended modifications, if required resulting from public comment.
The Draft 2020 IRUWMP provides a comprehensive guide for water resource management for the Upper Santa Ana River Watershed and documents SBMWD's plans to ensure adequate water supplies to meet existing and future demands under a range of water supply conditions, including water shortages. The Draft WSCP documents SBMWD's plans to manage and mitigate an actual water shortage condition, should one occur because of drought or other impacts on water supplies.
A copy of the Draft 2020 IRUWMP and Draft WSCP will be available for public review beginning in June 2021 and can be downloaded at www.sbmwd.org/196/Engineering-Reportsand-Plans or viewed at the SBMWD's Engineering Customer Counter located at 397 Chandler Place, San Bernardino between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please contact the SBMWD if you require special accommodations.
Please provide written comments on the Draft 2020 IRUWMP documents to Francisco Jimenez at Francisco.Jimenez@sbmwd.org prior to June 18, 2021. If you have any questions regarding SBMWD's 2020 IRUWMP or WSCP or public hearing meeting, please contact Francisco Jimenez at (909) 453-6175 or Francisco.Jimenez@sbmwd.org.
