Water Management and Conservation Planning (WMCP)

The purpose of a Water Management and Conservation Plan (WMCP) is to be a guide to the development and implementation of water management and conservation programs and policies to ensure sustainable use of water resources for municipal and agricultural water users. A WMCP provides a description of the water system, identifies the sources of water used by the community or district, and explains how the water supplier will manage and conserve supplies to meet future needs. Preparation of a WMCP is intended to represent a proactive evaluation of the management and conservation measures that suppliers can undertake.
