01:48:33
What are the current consequences if a water purveyor declines to re-adopt and revise it's UWMP? In the context that SB606/AB1668 prescribe state fines for purveyors who fail to achieve efficient water use, why are UWMPs needed?
Meeting Support: Sophie Carrillo-Mandel
01:48:42
Thank you for joining us today, this Zoom meeting has reached capacity. If you have colleagues who would like to attend, we have set up an overflow zoom meeting to ensure that everyone can view the presentations and provide comments through the chat panel. Please see below a registration link to the overflow meeting:https://csus.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJwsduCrrzouHtRGNmWZaITFyjb6gHp_4RzS

DWR sent this message to their UWMP listserv earlier today.
Corey Temple
01:51:13
Will you be sending out a copy of the presentation?
Meeting Support: Sophie Carrillo-Mandel
01:54:02
DWR can provide the presentations. They will also provide a recording of this meeting.
Sabrina Cook
01:54:52
This presentation is being recorded and it will be available. The presentation will also be available. Currently we make them available via a stakeholder sharepoint site that interested parties can gain access. Request access to the stakeholder sharpoint site by emailing: wue@water.ca.gov.
Sabrina Cook
01:55:36
We can also directly email these to individual requestors and we will consider just emailing all registrants - considering the size of the list, we will try and identify the most efficient option.
Lauren Smith
01:58:27
Is reporting of potable vs. non-potable optional, or are just the use of the planning tool tables optional?
Sabrina Cook
01:58:52
As noted in the slide, the potable/non-potable is optional
Jeanne Swaringen
02:04:14
Can you expand on climate change info needed?
Donna McCormick
02:04:35
ditto Jeanne please
Colin Close
02:05:16
Appendix I has info on climate change
Margaret Laporte
02:05:53
We plan to add a “lay person” synopsis section at the start of each chapter. This would summarize the chapter contents.
Lauren Smith
02:06:45
Are the excel spreadsheets for the optional planning tool and the required submittal tables available now; if not, when will they be available?
Joseph Reichenberger PE
02:07:07
Will there be a discussion of climate change impacts on the State Water Project Deliveries? Should be done at state level for consistency.
Meeting Support: Sophie Carrillo-Mandel
02:07:09
The excel draft versions of the tables are already available via the public WUEdata portal (https://wuedata.water.ca.gov/) under Urban Water Management Plans, Resources
Margaret Laporte
02:08:12
When sections are not applicable to a supplier, such as groundwater, recycled water, and delta supplies, what is the preferred way to specify that these are not applicable. We could simply add a statement under each section as “not applicable”. Would that be an appropriate solution?
Sierra Orr
02:08:46
The link for the methodologies document link fails.
Corey Temple
02:10:08
You have to delete the parenthesis for the link to work
Colin Close
02:10:53
https://wuedata.water.ca.gov/manage_resources.asp?reportType=urban
Margaret Laporte
02:10:55
For the Covid-19 pandemic, we suggest adding a discussion about changes in water use patterns, in section 3.4.2 “Other Social, Economic, and Demographic Factors”.
ROBIN BIER
02:11:19
Can you elaborate a little on the population tool versus DOF vs (for my area) SANDAG?
Sierra Orr
02:11:55
Will the Appendices be released for review, and if so, when?
Spencer Waterman
02:12:40
1. Regarding 2020 population calculations, it appears that various methods can be used “until the 2020 Census data is released” (p. 5-7). If a supplier uses one interim method, will they have to replace it eventually with 2020 Census data? If so, when is the Census data and DWR’s Population Tool expected to be available? The Guidebook’s indication of a tool “in adequate time for 2020 UWMP preparation” (p. 5-8) is not clear.a. It appears 2020 population can be calculated using ACS and DOF estimates if an agency overlaps >95% of the boundary (p. 5-8). Can an agency not overlapping >95% use ACS data to inform a better persons per connection factor than using the 2010 census per connection factor?
Sabrina Cook
02:13:45
the appendicies are already posted on the same webpage with the main guidebook:https://water.ca.gov/Programs/Water-Use-And-Efficiency/Urban-Water-Use-Efficiency/Urban-Water-Management-Plans
Colin Close
02:16:06
What about appendix for guidance on Annual Water Supply and Demand Assessments?
Stephanie Reyna-Hiestand
02:16:25
you mentioned that there was a SB-x77 2020 verification form due Dec 2020. Where is that spreadsheet available?
Kevin Tuttle
02:16:28
I’ve seen each shown twice in terms of water supply source, but was referenced as more focused on surface supplies. Does this also mean each groundwater source (ie singular wells)?
Colin Close
02:17:15
SB x 7-7 form here: https://wuedata.water.ca.gov/manage_resources.asp?reportType=urban
Margaret Laporte
02:22:07
is it a requirement to calculate the energy intensity within their service area?
Ashley Metzger
02:23:15
Does that logic apply to private pumping?
Thomas Niesar
02:25:09
At least one of our sources (Hetch Hetchy) is completely gravity fed to our service District and is a net energy producer. Any guidance on how to include this?
Karen Johnson
02:26:26
When I assess water demands and projections, I always remove demands met by other/privat sources
Joseph Reichenberger PE
02:27:34
yes entered as a negative
Sunny W
02:29:21
There's one from Timothy Shaw at 12:44 that was missed
Meeting Support: Sophie Carrillo-Mandel
02:29:29
Comments on the Draft Urban Water Management Plan Guidebook are due September 21, 2020. Please submit comments to uwmphelp@water.ca.gov.
Colin Close
02:30:24
I don't see the appendix for guidance on how to write up our procedures for the Annual Water Supply and Demand Assessments. Is that appendix coming out soon?
Sabrina Cook
02:30:44
guidance for the annual water supply and demand assessments is being worked on and will be an addendum-type document to this guidebook.
Colin Close
02:30:55
thank you!
Sabrina Cook
02:31:25
The sbx7-7 forms are available where the UWMP tables are on the WUEdata portal
Colin Close
02:33:34
SBX7-7 forms here: https://wuedata.water.ca.gov/manage_resources.asp?reportType=urban
Margaret Laporte
02:34:03
What changes (to the draft) do you anticipate for the final 2020 UWMP Guidebook?
Joseph Reichenberger PE
02:35:30
when will it be finalized? HOw can we incorporate it by July1?
Paul Piazza
02:39:38
Are the WSCP elements applicable to both Retailers and Wholesalers?
Rosalyn Prickett
02:39:49
Can the WSCP be adopted as a chapter of the UWMP, rather than stand alone?
Spencer Waterman
02:41:27
It is unclear what wholesale suppliers are required to report on per Section 8.0- WHOLESALE ONLY: “This chapter may not apply to Wholesale Suppliers if they have not received the consent of all their member agencies” (p. 8-6). Can you plainly state or list what is required for a wholesale agency in this section specifically?
Stephanie Reyna-Hiestand
02:42:20
will the powerpoint be made available for reference?
Daniel Drugan
02:42:38
I second Rosalyn Prickett's question
Orit Kalman
02:42:50
PPT and recording will be available
Spencer Waterman
02:43:56
If an agency proposes certain measures in their adopted WSCP, but does not codify them, is that acceptable? I assume this would serve in the place of the old requirement to provide a "draft water shortage contingency resolution or ordinance".
Ben Wong
02:44:58
For suppliers who have already enacted permanent conservation measures, is it at the suppliers discretion determine the appropriate shortage level that is considered normal?
Spencer Waterman
02:46:14
CPUC agencies “need prior approval by the PUC before adopting regulations and restrictions of this type” (CWC Section 357). Perhaps CPUC regulated agencies can weigh in, is this achievable before July 2021, and does it require inclusion in a rate case or other timebound process? If it is not achievable by July 21, can a CPUC regulated agency submit a draft WSCP that is not yet adopted with indication that it is being considered by the CPUC and will be amended once approved?
Katie Cole
02:46:40
Once the Guidebook is final, it would be helpful to have a separate webinar to just walk through the changes in the WSCP chapter, and how to appropriately address them
Neil
02:47:16
Are the requirements/procedures to adopt to adopt a WSCP the same as a UWMP ?
Spencer Waterman
02:47:20
Existing LHMPs and MMPs can be used to satisfy the seismic requirement (p. 8-18). Is there a central location where an agency can look up if there are existing LHMPs overlapping their service area?
Ben Wong
02:51:43
For the reliability analysis, is the definition for the single dry year (lowest water supply year) a new standard or interpretation by DWR? This definition is not specified in the CWC
Thomas Niesar
02:52:24
If WSCP adopted as a chapter of the UWMP - is a separate Board adoption action required?
Colin Close
03:02:34
Thomas - our City adopts them in one Resolution …
Colin Close
03:02:54
But calls them out separately in that Reso
Lauren Smith
03:03:28
Is the Methodologies document that was provided with the 2010 UWMP the correct document to use to inform how to comply with SBx7-7 for an Agency that has merged with another agency or annexed areas?
Colin Close
03:03:39
Re: appendix P - the current Appendix P available online is a different topic
Margaret Laporte
03:06:35
Can you please clarify what is required for the WSCP by 12/31/20? Maybe I misheard what you stated about deadlines for the WSCP
Gretel Ochoa-Nhac
03:10:01
So if the agency has a drought contingency plan already as a stand alone document, we just have to evaluate it, not re-invite it correct? and attach it as an appendix
Cheryl Dilks
03:10:09
In Chapter 10, you're noting that the WSCP adoption should be documented. However, if I'm understanding correctly, Sabrina stated that the WSCP could be approved after July 2021, as necessary. Can you please clarify? Can the WSCP in fact be adopted after July 2021?
Joseph Reichenberger PE
03:11:14
Where in the UWMP does this Appendix material go/fit?
Joseph Reichenberger PE
03:13:01
Do we have to do this if we participate in Delta Conveyance and Sites Reservoir?
Gabriela Olson
03:16:07
If we keep our current stages of our water shortage contingency plan, do we need to include the crosswalk as part of the stand alone Water Shortage Contingency Plan or should it be in the UWMP document?
Lauren Smith
03:17:36
If an Agency receives water from the State Water Project, does that automatically define the Agency as participating in or receiving water from a 'covered action'?
Sierra Orr
03:17:38
Is the update of the 2015 plan only recommended for those using water from the Delta?
ROBIN BIER
03:19:38
Would going back and amending the 2015 UWMP potentially negatively impact developers that prepared EIRs and WSA’s relying on the 2015 UWMP?
Elena Layugan - Upper District
03:21:54
Just want to clarify: water use efficiency 'supply volume' is the amount of water a reporting agency determines to be its estimated water savings attributed to WUE (conservation) efforts?
Rosalyn Prickett
03:22:45
Are other transfers, exchanges or imports considered waters that contribute to regional self-reliance (e.g., all non-Delta supplies)?
Shea Frazier
03:28:52
where can we view the recorded link?
Fiona Sanchez
03:31:12
As a general comment, the use of Required and Recommended throughout the Guidebook is helpful, but in many places the Required seems to also touch on recommendations. it would be helpful in the final guidebook to make it very clear what is required in the Plan and which tables are required.
Burt Handy
03:33:03
When State Water Project water is sold to another contractor, there is a return amount of water required. How will this be handled in the plan
Joseph Reichenberger PE
03:33:36
So we have about 6 months to prepare and adopt. Reasonable?
Alexi Schnell
03:33:37
You addressed tables for Appendix C, stated they will be posted, but will all Excel tables be posted and available for download in the near term (including Appendix O - Energy)? Or will some of the tables not be available to use until the spring.
Colin Close
03:33:57
Alexi tables are here https://wuedata.water.ca.gov/manage_resources.asp?reportType=urban
Donna McCormick
03:34:23
thanks !
Matthew Dickens
03:34:31
Thank you, this was very informative.
Anna Garcia
03:34:46
are tables for appendix C available in the last shared link?
Benjamin Pink
03:34:51
thank you!
Cristina Goulart
03:34:52
Thank you for the workshop.
Spencer Waterman
03:35:14
Thanks!
Andria Loutsch
03:35:24
This workshop left me with several more questions. More workshops would be helpful.
Burt Handy
03:35:43
Thank you for the workshop!!!!
Gretel Ochoa-Nhac
03:35:50
Thank you!!
Katie Cole
03:36:03
Thank you - would definitely be interested in a workshop focused on the WSCP
