State Water Plan Update

In preparation for the next budgeting process, the State Water Commission is in the process of developing an update to the 2015 State Water Plan – focusing on the 2017-2019 biennium and beyond. To make this process a success, the Planning and Education Division sent out letters in January to potential project sponsors from all across the state; asking for their help in identifying the water development projects and programs they’re trying to move forward, the timing of their implementation, and estimated costs.

As in the past, the input gained from local project sponsors and water managers will become the foundation of the State Water Commission’s budget request to the Governor and Legislature. Therefore, the information provided will ultimately help in the allocation of agency budget resources. Thus, we are interested in collecting information on water-related projects or programs that may require Water Commission cost-share during the 2017-2019 biennium and beyond.

Below are links to downloads for the 2017-2019 Project Information and Planning Form, Project Benefit Forms, and the current cost-share policy.

Deadline to submit was April 22, 2016.
