Drought Contingency

 

The City of Shenandoah recognizes its fundamental responsibility to provide an adequate supply of safe drinking water for residents and businesses within its city limits. Because drinking water is a precious natural resource, careful planning is needed to ensure that water suppliers are protected from contamination, are distributed effectively and efficiently to end users, and that procedures are in place to monitor consumption and to avoid waste.

Water shortage severity is determined by “triggers” based on known system capacity limits.

Stage 1:   Average run time of city wells are at or above sixteen (16) hours per day for five (5) consecutive days

Stage 2:   Average run time of city wells are at or above eighteen (18) hours per day for five (5) consecutive days

Stage 3:   Average run time of city wells are at or above twenty (20) hours per day for five (5) consecutive days

Stage 4:   Average run time of city wells are at or above twenty-one (21) hours per day for five (5) consecutive days

Stage 5:   Average run time of city wells are at or above twenty-two (22) hours per day for five (5) consecutive days
