What are water supply assessments?
Water Supply Assessments is an analysis of a specific project demand for short-term and long-term water usage. A Water Supply Assessment is required when a project would demand an amount of water equivalent to, or greater than, the amount of water required by a 500 dwelling unit project. During analysis, we contact the local water supplier to find out the annual water demand for a development. This will help determine whether the water demand for the development under consideration is equivalent to the water demand of a 500 dwelling unit project.
Water Code § 10912 (a)(7) While Water Code § 10912(a) provides that a “project” may include a residential development of 500 or more dwelling units. Water Code § 10912(b) provides a “sliding scale” for determining the size of a project. Since the latter provides that a “project” would increase the number of service connections, a “project” could be as few as 300 dwelling units.
