In 2013, the City of Urbana approved a Sustainable Water Management Plan that reviews the current state of five Aspects of water management and lays out goals to manage these aspects more sustainably by implementing specific, achievable actions. The five aspects are:
• Potable Water Supply and Demand
• Potable Water Quality
• Surface Water and Stormwater Quality
• Flood Management
• Recreational Waters
The scope of actions prescribed by the plan include:
• Conservation retrofits in city-owned facilities
• Regional collaboration
• Public policies
• Public engagement
Scott will discuss the existing conditions and the goals for each aspect of the plan and share some thoughts on plan making.
