The following documents represent Fresno’s plans to address severe water shortages, and the City’s vision for providing a sustainable water supply for future generations.
Plans, Reports & Resources
Collection System Master Plan
The City’s Wastewater Collection System Master Plan is used as a comprehensive planning tool to assist in determining areas of priorities for rehabilitation and/or expansion that will provide sufficient sewer capacity to accommodate future and existing users.
Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP)
On May 2, 2006, the State Water Resources Control Board issued Order 2006-003-DWQ, a Statewide General Waste Discharge Requirements for Sanitary Sewer Systems. (WDR-SSS) Its main purpose was to reduce sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs). One of the requirements of the WDR-SSS is for all agencies to develop and implement a Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP) that will provide a mechanism to properly manage, operate and maintain all parts of the sanitary sewer system to prevent and/or eliminate SSOs. The City’s SSMP was approved by Council on April 7, 2009.

Recycled Water Master Plan
The Recycled Water Master Plan is intended to serve as a basis to support the City’s decision making process in selecting recycled water projects. The expansion of the recycled water system will enable the City to offset potable water use, enhance the sustainability of the water supply, and lessen the burden on the wastewater treatment plant percolation ponds that are currently used for effluent discharge.
RECYCLED WATER ORDINANCE
The purpose of this Ordinance is to promote the conservation and reuse of water resources and to ensure maximum public benefit from the use of the available water supply by regulating its use and distributing according to applicable Federal, State and Local standards.
