Drought Contingency



A drought contingency plan is a strategy for temporary supply management and demand management responses to temporary and potentially recurring water supply shortages and other supply emergencies. The philosophy of drought contingency planning is that short-term water shortages and other water supply emergency implementation procedures are defined to avoid, minimize, or mitigate the risks and impacts of drought or other water supply emergencies.

A drought contingency plan will typically include:

  • Public involvement
  • Specific criteria (trigger conditions) for the initiation of drought response stages
  • Specific water supply and/or water demand management measures for each stage of the plan
  • Public notification procedures
  • Procedures for granting variance
  • Procedures for enforcement of any mandatory water use restrictions
