The Draft 2020 IRUWMP provides a comprehensive guide for water resource management for the Upper Santa Ana River Watershed and documents the Water District’s plans to ensure adequate water supplies to meet existing and future demands under a range of water supply conditions, including water shortages. The Draft WSCP documents the Water District’s plans to manage and mitigate an actual water shortage condition, should one occur because of drought or other impacts on water supplies.
