(2) City Council Action Item - August 28, 2018 (City Hall)

The Navajo-Gallup Water Supply Project (NGWSP) is designed to serve a future population of approximately 250,000 people by the year 2040. This population could be impacted by drought conditions at any point. The success of NGWSP depends on managing water demand during a variety of minor and major drought situations.

The City of Gallup and NGWSP stakeholders have a dire need for a Gallup /NGWSP "Water Commons" Drought Contingency Plan. To evaluate our water capability and to meet water demand preparing for all stages of droughts impacts. As a final product, have in place adequate plans to deal with water drought mitigation actions to prepare NGWSP constituents and the City of Gallup for these drought situations.

Based on the drought stage and duration, proposed response actions will be taken to protect essential and secondary assets.
