In order to provide guidance to address the city of Gold Beach's future water needs, a water master
plan was developed to be used for systematic upgrades to the City's water system. Included was a water
management and conservation plan. As part of the study, the current water distribution system, demand
patterns, and system performance were evaluated with WaterCAD with respect to critical service standards,
and emphasis on selected vital or high fire flow areas within the City. As a result, specific projects
were recommended for inclusion in the water distribution system Capital Improvement Program, along with
financing plans to facilitate successful implementation of recommendations.
While the City has not been required to address water conservation in the past, the City plans to implement 15 separate conservation measures recommended by this study. In addition a water curtailment plan was compiled based on four levels or stages of alert using standard industry indicators.
