2020 Urban Water Management Plan

The Gilroy City Council will hold public hearings to review and discuss the 2020 Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) and 2020 Water Shortage Contingency Plan (WSCP) on October 4 and October 18, 2021. The public hearings will be held at 6:00 pm or as soon thereafter as the item can be heard in the Gilroy City Council Chambers at City Hall, 7351 Rosanna Street, Gilroy, California.

The City of Gilroy is preparing its 2020 UWMP to continue to provide adequate water supplies to meet existing and future water demands within the City’s Urban Growth Boundary. The 2020 UWMP updates the information in the City’s existing 2015 UWMP and provides an overview of the City’s efficient water uses, water supplies, and demand management measures. Additionally, the 2020 WSCP builds upon previous planning efforts and outlines the City’s plan to address potential future water shortages.

The draft of 2020 UWMP and 2020 WSCP are available for public review on the City website www.cityofgilroy.org (see document links below) and in the office of the City Clerk during normal business hours: M-F, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., excluding holidays, at City Hall, 7351 Rosanna Street, Gilroy.

Interested parties are encouraged to attend this public hearing as this is the time and place when comments on the proposals shall be heard and given due consideration. Persons who are unable to attend this public hearing may submit written comments by delivering them to the City Clerk at City Hall, 7351 Rosanna St, Gilroy, CA, 95020 prior to, or at the public hearings to be incorporated into the record.
