Abstract : This report provides information to help Army installations develop a drought contingency plan that reflects an individual installation's specific needs. The various stages of drought are defined to allow installation personnel to recognize the degree to which their water supplies may be reduced. Several water conservation and augmentation strategies that have been used successfully are provided, and guidelines for developing a successful drought contingency plan are outlined. These guidelines provide a basis for estimating emergency water requirements and show ways to assign water use priorities and allocate water supplies. Keywords: Drought, Water conservation, Army installations.
