Title: WATER DEMAND OFFSET (WDO) POLICY AND WDO FEE STUDY The City of Santa Rosa is required by California State Law to prepare an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) and Water Shortage Contingency Plan (Shortage Plan) every five years to assess the adequacy and reliability of water supplies for current and future needs as well as plan for and detail how the City will respond to various levels of water supply shortage. Staff will present an informational session on the proposed Water Demand Offset (WDO) Policy and WDO Fee Study, which have been developed to implement the City’s Shortage Plan requirement that new construction must offset water demand during water shortage emergencies that require water allocations (water rationing). It is recommended by Santa Rosa Water that the Board of Public Utilities hold a Study Session to receive information, ask questions, discuss, and provide feedback regarding the proposed Water Demand Offset (WDO) Policy and WDO Fee Study.
