INSTRUCTIONS FOR MANDATORY WATER CONSERVATION NOTICE
Three phases that have impacts on individual water use. The table
below describes the three drought phases of which two are voluntary water conservation objectives and a
third with a mandatory prohibition of nonessential water uses.

Water suppliers are required to develop and maintain a valid drought contingency plan that outlines
watch, warning, and emergency stages. The drought contingency plan is valid three years from the date
of approval by the Pennsylvania Drought Coordinator. The drought stages are based on indicator criteria
or triggers tailored to the sources of supply that accurately identify the onset of drought occurrences in a
timely fashion. The triggers used to monitor a system’s key supply sources may include storage levels of
reservoirs or stream flows for surface water sources, and pumping levels or well yields for groundwater
sources. The water supplier may request voluntary or mandatory water use restrictions within its own
service area in advance of any state announcements or declaration.
When the Governor declares a drought emergency, Chapter 119 PEMA regulations on prohibition of
nonessential water uses apply to all individuals. Under a declared drought emergency, Chapter 118
requires water suppliers who provide service to 50 or more customer connections and have either a
source of water or a service area within the designated drought emergency to develop, adopt and submit
a drought contingency plan. The drought contingency plan identifies plans of action such as:
