Emergency & Disaster Response Planning

California has often been called a natural disaster theme park: fires, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis and droughts. You name it, we have it. A water system emergency is any situations to which customers are without water, or the water is unsafe to drink. What will you do when an emergency or disaster strikes? Do you have a written response plan? Do you have a drought contingency plan? Do you have mutual
aid agreements in place? How will you protect the health of your customers?

Participants in this workshop will learn:

  • The wide variety of emergency situations to which California’s water systems are exposed
  • How to formulate and adopt a Drought Contingency Plan
  • How to establish effective mutual aid agreements
  • How to create an emergency and disaster response plan using the SWRCB-approved template


This workshop will provide water system personnel with the information and resources to respond preemptively and proactively to most emergency situations.
