The Drought Contingency and Emergency Plan (Plan) is to identify clear steps and strategies to reduce unnecessary water use in the face of drought and/or emergency conditions. Reducing use when water is limited helps ensure that water is available for the most critical needs and preserves human health and safety. The Plan affects all customers, including bulk and wholesale customers.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requires that utilities of a specific size have a plan in place and give utilities the authority to develop plans that meet TCEQ requirements but are also tailored to the utility's unique challenges and customer base (30 T.A.C. §288).
