City Council Holding Public Hearing to Discuss Water Management Plans

At its regularly scheduled meeting on November 16th, the Susanville City Council will consider a Water Shortage Contingency Plan and Urban Water Management Plan and will hold a Public Hearing at the same time to discuss the issues and gather public input.

“Under Senate Bill 552, passed and signed by Governor Gavin Newsom in September 2021, State and local governments will share the responsibility in preparing and acting in the case of a water shortage event,” explains Jolene Arredondo, Assistant City Administrator.

“These new requirements are expected to improve the ability of Californians to manage future droughts and help prevent catastrophic impacts on drinking water for communities vulnerable to impacts of climate change.”

The bill outlines the new requirements for small water suppliers, county governments, DWR, and the State Water Board to implement more proactive drought planning and be better prepared for future water shortage events or dry years.

The Public Hearing is scheduled for November 16th, 2022, at approximately 5:15p.m., during the regularly scheduled City Council meeting.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend the Public Hearing and provide input.

Written comments may also be submitted to the city of Susanville by emailing Marci Rojas at [email protected]. Public comments will be accepted through November 18th, 2022.

The Urban Water Management Plan 2020 Update is available on the city’s website.
