Part 1: Guidelines | IV. Drinking Water Assessment

Linking Water Supply, the Community Facilities Element and the County Water and Sewerage Plan with the WRE

​​The community facilities element of the comprehensive plan should describe goals and recommendations for water supply and water systems within the jurisdiction. In addition to goals and recommendations for financing, operation and maintenance and water connections, this element should summarize or refer to the water quality protection and supply development goals and recommendations listed in the WRE.

The County Water and Sewerage Plan will include proposed water service areas as well as a description of the additional water infrastructure and supply development needed to serve expected growth within these areas. These areas must be sized and phased in accordance with the findings and recommendations of the WRE, since the WRE will indicate how much growth can be supported within the planning time period and when adequate water supply will be available to serve that growth. The description of additional water infrastructure and supply development needed must also be consistent with the findings of the WRE.
