Drought Preparedness and Response Plan

Tucson Water's Drought Preparedness and Response Plan has been updated for 2012.In 2005, the Arizona Legislature passed a law (HB 2277pdf) that required all Arizona water providers to develop a drought preparedness and response plan.

Plans must include identification of drought response stages that will prepare providers for a reduction in water supply due to drought. Each plan must have drought-related public notification and continuing education, development of emergency supplies, and specific water-supply or water-demand management measures for each drought response stage. The State requires plans be reviewed every five years. Tucson Water reviewed its original drought response plan in 2011.
