Example Procedures for notifying system
customers of potential water shortage
Who is Responsible The water system manager is ultimately responsible for making the decision to notify customers regarding a potential water shortage and the need for water use restrictions. The water system manager should consult with field staff to make the decision. Once the decision is made procedures for notification will be initiated.
Procedures Water system manager confers with key staff to verify problems. Water system manager organizes staff to develop the message to be delivered to the customers. Water system manager consults with state drinking water staff regarding the problem. Water system manager with assistance from staff prepares door hangers, signs and radio message. Water system operator continues to investigate problem and make repairs as necessary. The water shortage notification will be distributed by Field staff placing water shortage notices on doors and along travel routes. Staff will place signs on main travel routes into the community. Water system manager contacts radio station and requests issuance of the water shortage notice and request to curtail water use. Administrative support person will provide a pre-scripted message to phone callers and log in each phone call. Water system operator continuously updates the water system manager on water shortage. Once water shortage is resolved, re-notify customers.
