A Request for your Consideration and Input for Possible Improvements to the Guidebook for Municipal Water Management and Conservation Plans
It’s been almost 10 years since the “Water Management and Conservation Plans: A Guidebook for Oregon Municipal Water Suppliers (May 2003)” was developed through a joint effort sponsored by the League of Oregon Cities (LOC), the Oregon Water Utilities Commission (OWUC) and the Special Districts Association of Oregon. A Review Committee (consisting of members from LOC, OWUC, the Oregon Department of Water Resources (OWRD) and representatives from municipal water suppliers) provided oversight on development and preparation of the guidance.
Since its publication, many municipal water suppliers have utilized the guidebook to help prepare their Water Management and Conservation Plan (WMCP) for submittal to OWRD for review and approval.
OWRD has learned a lot during this time, and while WMCP quality has improved, there are opportunities to provide better direction and guidance to water suppliers that need to develop a municipal WMCP. Click here to find out more.
