Incident Action Checklist to Prepare for a Drought Mobile App

Drought is a period of abnormally dry and/or unusually hot weather that is sufficiently prolonged to cause a serious hydraulic imbalance. Droughts normally develop and end slowly with impacts potentially lasting several years afterwards. Areas that have experienced a drought are also at an increased risk of flash flooding because the dry ground cannot effectively absorb rainwater. The Incident Action Checklist to Prepare for a Drought mobile app outlines actions water and wastewater utilities can take to prepare for a drought. The preparation app covers planning, coordination, communication with customers, facility and service area, power, energy and fuel.
