In 2008, CUWCD began a comprehensive district-wide effort to identify the risk from natural hazards at each of the facilities owned or operated by the district. This effort resulted in the preparation of a Hazard Mitigation Plan adopted by the district and approved by FEMA in 2009. This plan identified the risks to district facilities and recommended means and methods to mitigate those risks. The list of proposed mitigation activities was prioritized and the district began to implement the highest priority mitigation activities with help from FEMA PDM grants. The 2009 plan’s approval from FEMA expired in 2014. The district is nearing completion of the update to its Hazard Mitigation Plan that includes new facilities constructed since 2009 and new natural hazards. The update includes efforts to engage with the district’s stakeholders to coordinate key elements of the plan.
