Town of Hillsborough Urban Water Management Plan Update

The Urban Water Management Plan Act (California Water Code §10610-10656) requires the Town of Hillsborough to update its Urban Water Management Plan (“UWMP”) every five years. The UWMP evaluates Hillsborough’s water supply and demand, and provides a blueprint for meeting the community’s long-term water supply objectives. The Town updated its 2005 UWMP after proposed revisions to the UWMP were made available for public review. A public hearing was held on October 10, 2011 and the 2010 UWMP was adopted by the City Council. The adopted UWMP has been submitted to the Department of Water Resources, and a printed copy was made available at Town Hall for public review for 30 days after adoption.  For additional information or if you have questions, please contact:
