Draft Water Efficiency Master Plan Update
The City of Longmont is updating the 2008 Water Conservation Master Plan. The purpose of the Plan is to assess the overall characteristics of current and future City water use, summarize the current status of raw water supply and treatment capacity, and use this information to frame the City’s water conservation program with respect to current and ongoing water supply needs and water demand management. In addition, the Plan provides a detailed assessment related to the identification and selection of future water efficiency measures and programs that the City will continue to implement.
A formal public comment period for review of the draft Plan was open for 60 days beginning April 17, 2017 and ending June 15, 2017. These comments were documented and are now being considered by the project team as the Plan update moves forward. It is anticipated that a final version of the Plan will be presented to City Council for review and adoption in late 2017.
