Water Resource Management Plan
On Saturday, Dec. 14 the city of Rio Rancho’s Public Works Department/Utilities Operations Division held a public meeting to gather input regarding an update of the city’s Water Resource Management Plan (WRMP). 

The WRMP outlines the city’s water resources and practices along with a plan for management strategies.  The update process includes reviewing and reprioritizing existing initiatives and identifying new practices for future years.  Updating the WRMP is necessary in order for the city to be eligible in the future for certain federal and state grant opportunities related to water management. 

To view the current WRMP and proposed revisions, please click the links below.  Feedback received at the Dec. 14 public meeting will be summarized and posted to the city’s Web site and incorporated into the WRMP update.  It is anticipated that the city’s Utilities Commission will consider the WRMP update at one of their regular meetings in spring 2014.

Updating the WRMP is funded through a $21,544 grant from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and $21,544 in city Public Works Department/Utilities Operations Division funds.  Proposed revisions to the WRMP have been developed by staff from different city departments, the Utilities Commission, and with the assistance of project consultant Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.

The current WRMP was completed in 2004, and was developed by a technical team comprised of city staff and consultants as well as a 26-member group of citizens.
