The Water Master Plan is one of the City of Sugar Land’s eight (8) master plans. The Water Master Plan is updated every 5 years and describes the infrastructure and policies necessary to accomplish the water-related goals of the City’s Comprehensive Plan.
The 2012 update examined and updated development projections, regulatory requirements, integration of surface water conversion, water resource planning and strategies to implement water-related guidance in the City’s Comprehensive Plan.
The process to update the 2012 Water Master Plan occurred in a two-phase approach. Phase I involved the “traditional” master planning functions relating to planning for growth and regulatory requirements. Phase II addressed broader policy issues and developed strategies to accomplish water-related goals and objectives and the City’s overall vision. Phase II also gathered community input during four stakeholder meetings. Stakeholder groups included City of Sugar Land Groundwater Reduction Plan participants, Sugar Land 101 graduates, Homeowner Association representatives, Sugar Land Parks & Recreation Advisory Board Members, and Keep Sugar Land Beautiful representatives. In addition, citizens were encouraged to participate in the water planning process by visiting the City of Sugar Land's Online Town Hall and leaving comments.
