GCWA DROUGHT CONTINGENCY PLAN:

Update Process

The Gulf Coast Water Authority has embarked on a comprehensive process to update its Drought Contingency Plan – and created a Drought Task Force to represent stakeholders in that effort.

The updated plan, due by November 2018, is intended to include:

  • Improved assessment of drought severity
  • Planning for groundwater usage during drought
  • Better methods of water loss reduction
  • Standard drought contingency planning elements

The purpose of the Drought Task Force is to provide feedback and information on components of the Updated Plan – including drought monitoring, vulnerability assessment, mitigation actions and response actions.
