2021 Water Development Plan – Deadline Extended

Project sponsors seeking to be included in the 2021 Water Development Plan can access the online submission form here. Please submit each project individually so they are inventoried correctly. To identify if your project is eligible for SWC cost-share assistance, the policy and eligibility requirements are available under the “Project Development” tab.

In addition to new project submittals, projects that were included in the 2019 or previous Water Development Plans must submit updated information if those projects were not funded, in order to be included in the 2021 Plan. In order to be included in this planning process, we ask that you submit your information before May 20, 2020.
