The California Water Plan.


Existing law requires the Department of Water Resources to update every 5 years the plan for the orderly and coordinated control, protection, conservation, development, and use of the water resources of the state, which is known as The California Water Plan. Existing law requires the department to include a discussion of various strategies in the plan update, including, but not limited to, strategies relating to the development of new water storage facilities, water conservation, water recycling, desalination, conjunctive use, water transfers, and alternative pricing policies that may be pursued in order to meet the future needs of the state. This bill would require the department to include in the plan update, instead of a discussion of various strategies, a discussion of various strategies for increasing regional water resilience, as defined. Existing law requires the department to include in The California Water Plan a report on the development of regional and local water projects within each hydrologic region of the state to improve water supplies to meet municipal, agricultural, and environmental water needs and minimize the need to import water from other hydrologic regions. This bill would delete "hydrologic" from the phrase "hydrologic region" in that provision and would require, for purposes of that provision, the department, in collaboration with the State Water Resources Control Board, to develop maps delineating regions in the state based on specified federally published hydrologic units. The bill would also make nonsubstantive and related changes.
