For Immediate Release
Redwood City Invites Community to Help Update the Urban Water Management Plan
Redwood City, CA - February 22, 2011
- Redwood City’s Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) is a blueprint for our community’s water supply, for today and the future – it’s an important visionary tool for meeting our long-term water supply objectives. This 20-year document is updated every five years, and right now the community’s ideas, opinions and suggestions are needed as the City moves forward with drafting the updated plan. A special UWMP workshop is scheduled, and interested members of the community are encouraged to attend and be part of updating this plan for the future of our most precious resource – our water supply:
- Thursday, March 3rd, 6 - 8 pm
Redwood Shores Library Community Room
399 Marine Parkway
RSVP to (650) 780-5991 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Refreshments will be served. An additional workshop is expected to be scheduled for May, 2011.
The vital importance of a long-term water supply for our homes, businesses, parks, and schools is clear – and as we move forward, Redwood City wants to ensure that the community’s perspective is fully considered and referenced in the updated Plan. Those who live and work in Redwood City play an important role in producing the UWMP, to help ensure it reflects the community’s needs. To gain that perspective, the entire community is invited to join the discussion of these essential water supply topics: reliability and impacts of drought; impacts of projected demand; water conservation; water reuse; and more.
The UWMP supports our community’s long-term water resource planning and helps to ensure that adequate water supplies are available to meet today’s water needs, as well as future water demands. It provides a summary of the variety of water resource policy and planning elements involved for Redwood City - water demands, water supplies, water delivery infrastructure, reliability of our water supply, projections of future water demand and identification of future sources of water, water conservation, and water recycling, among others. Updated information and schedules for the process of developing the UWMP are available online at www.redwoodcity.org/uwmp.
