News & Announcements
City of Santa Fe Water (City) and Santa Fe County Utilities (County) are initiating a collaborative, science-based, 5-year planning cycle to develop long-range water resource management plans and are seeking public input to inform this important process. Residents of the City or County are invited to fill out an online survey to help the City and County better understand the public’s perspectives, values, and priorities with respect to water. To date approximately 550 people have responded to the survey which is a small fraction of the water users in the area. The City and the County are leaving the survey open through November and hope to get hundreds of more responses in the next couple of weeks. The survey takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
The final product of the Water Resources Planning process will be separate, but mutually consistent Long-Range Water Resources Plans for the City and the County. Given the continuously evolving nature of anticipating, planning for, and managing present and future water needs, City and County officials expect to evaluate and refine management plans through regular planning cycles, to be repeated approximately every 10 years, or more often as necessary in future years.
