The department’s Water Resources Center and the Safe Drinking Water Program are responsible for assisting state residences in assuring an adequate and safe water supply. The purpose of a water supply study is to ensure availability of water information for effective decision-making by communities and department managers. In addition, studies are expected to be used to determine and allocate existing water supplies. The scope primarily addresses surface water supplies for cities and communities that are expected to experience water shortages during an extended drought. Surface water supplies consist of lakes and rivers and streams, and in many cases combinations of both.
