Water Shortage Response Handbook

A Water Shortage Response Ordinance should be designed to alleviate last minute decisions and make restrictions progress quickly and easily. Much care should be taken to get into writing exactly what the water supplier expects to be done. Changes can always be made, but they take time. Each community should tailor its ordinance to local conditions. An ordinance allows water suppliers and their customers to respond early to avoid the necessity for extreme measures later, if an ordinance is in place before it is needed.
