City of Santa Fe Water & Santa Fe County Utilities Division
Five-Year Water Resource Planning Cycle
City of Santa Fe Water (City) and the Santa Fe County Utilities Division (County) are engaged in a science-based, community informed planning cycle to develop long range water resource management plans. The current planning effort began in 2020 and is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2024. The planning process 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.
