Agricultural Water Management

The initial development and subsequent updates of the Agricultural Water Management Plan (AWMP) represent substantial efforts by Yuba Water Agency (Yuba Water) to evaluate its water management objectives, including the development of detailed water balances for the distribution and drainage system of Yuba Water and its customers, the member units and for their farmed lands. Additionally, Yuba Water has evaluated the implementation of the full range of efficient water management practices with respect to its water management objectives and various water use efficiency improvements.

The 2020 Agricultural Water Management Plan has been prepared in accordance with the Water Conservation Act of 2009 (SBx7-7), the 2018 Water Management Planning Legislation (Assembly Bill 1668) and the Agricultural Water Measurement Requirements under Title 23 of the CCR.
