Water is a precious natural resource important to our health, community
and the quality of life in the Central Valley. The City of Modesto relies
on ground water and surface water for the community’s drinking water supply.
Because water is precious, it is essential to conserve and use
water efficiently. The City of Modesto has a long standing commitment to water
conservation and offers a variety of programs, informational materials and
community outreach events to help the city’s water customers become more
In the 2005 & 2010 Urban Water Management Plan, the City developed and
approved a Water Conservation Plan. The intent was to better define the
City’s Water Conservation Program and to plan for conservation program
implementation in the future, while also meeting the state mandatory water
use reduction of 20% by the year 2020.
The City has implemented, or plans to implement, all the Best Management
Practices included in the 2005/2010 UWMP as defined by the California Urban
Water Conservation Council (CUWCC).
