Five-Year Water Resource Planning Cycle
City of Santa Fe Water (City) and the Santa Fe County Utilities Division (County) are initiating a science-based, community informed, five year planning cycle to develop long range water resource management plans. The first cycle, which begins this year and is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2024, will be evaluated, refined, and repeated every 10 years or as necessary in future years. A key product of the planning process will be Long Range Water Resources Plans for the City and County.
We have created an online survey to get a sense of how you think about water. This survey takes between 20 and 30 minutes to complete. If you don't have that much time, please take a quick look and just answer the questions that are interesting to you.
2020 Public Engagement Goals
- Meaningful public engagement for as many stakeholders as possible.
- Participation of water users in the four Santa Fe City districts and County communities, with focus on Eldorado, Cañoncito, La Cienega, La Cieneguilla, Nambe, Pojoaque, and Tesuque.

- Provide an opportunity for long-term public engagement for stakeholders interested in participating in the planning process.
