The Water Management Plan (WMP or Plan) is required by and must be in accordance with the Mid-Pacific Region 2017 Standard Criteria. In 2014, SEWD adopted a WMP to meet the requirements of the Mid-Pacific Region 2011 Standard Criteria. In 2015, SEWD also prepared an Agricultural Water Management Plan (AWMP) to meet the requirements of the Water Conservation Act of 2009, also known as Senate Bill x7-7 (SBx7-7), and Governor Brown’s April 1, 2015 Executive Order B-29-15.
As a best management practice (BMP) outlined within the WMP, SEWD has provided on-farm irrigation evaluations free to its customers since 1999. The evaluations have been promoted through SEWD’s semi-annual newsletter, District field personnel, and at District Advisory Committee meetings, which are attended by stakeholders representing the urban and agricultural areas of SEWD. The on-farm evaluation program is voluntary but is encouraged and supported by SEWD. The program includes both agricultural pump testing and irrigation evaluations.
