Water Shortage Response Plan

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The purpose of the Water Shortage Response Plan (WSRP) is to deal with short-term or immediate water shortage, which may be caused by things such as drought, water quality problems or disruptions in facility operations. Since 2001, the Town of Cary has been required by the state to have a WSRP by both our Jordan Lake Allocation water supply contract and our interbasin transfer certificate.

As of July 1, 2009, all public and privately owned water systems subject to GS 143-355 (l) are required to have an approved WSRP as part of their Local Water Supply Plan (LWSP). Rules governing water use during droughts and water emergencies (15A NCAC 02E. 0607) stipulate specific items that must be included in those plans. This WSRP was developed in accordance with the Water Shortage Response Plan Guidelines provided by the Division of Water Resources (January 2009).
