Pursuant to the Governor's Executive Order B-37-16, the State Water Resources Control Board issued new Emergency Regulations in May 2016 which require urban water wholesalers, such as West Basin, to provide information on the reliability of water supplies they expect to deliver to each urban water supplier in the next three years. The calculations and underlying analysis must be posted to a publicly-accessible webpage, no later than June 15, 2016. West Basin's completed supply availability analysis and supporting documentation is available here.

The State of California, through the California Water Management Planning Act of 1983, as amended, requires every urban water supplier to develop an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) every five years to demonstrate in detail how their agency manages their water supplies and demands under all hydrology conditions. West Basin's draft 2015 UWMP is available for review. The Public Hearing to consider comments is scheduled for Monday, June 27, 2016 @ 1 p.m. at West Basin's headquarters. Subsequent to the Public Hearing, the West Basin Board of Directors will consider adoption of the UWMP.
This plan demonstrates not only how West Basin plans to meet its service area's retail demands over the next 25 years, but also how they plan to provide long-term water reliability through supply diversification. Since West Basin's formation in 1947, West Basin has strived to ensure water reliability. Through its efforts in recycled water, conservation, education, groundwater recovery and ocean water desalination research, West Basin continues to be a leader in water reliability by investing in a well-balanced water supply portfolio.
