On Oct. 10, 2017, the SAWS Board of Trustees unanimously approved the 2017 Water Management Plan. Based on stakeholder feedback received during the review stage, several changes were made to multiple sections of the document to provide more detail and understanding.

NOTE: Since the October 2017 SAWS Board meeting, three changes were made to the content of the 2017 Water Management Plan in an effort to improve the transparency and accuracy of the document:

  • A study on the water savings of permanent once-per-week watering was added to the end of the appendix.
  • Integration cost of the Vista Ridge project was added to the table on page 94.
  • Charts on pages 5 and 83 were corrected.
