This bill would require water purveyors to develop and implement drought interconnection plans and systems. Within 12 months after the bill's effective date, every water purveyor would be required to prepare a plan, in conjunction with every proximate public water utility within the region wherein the water purveyor provides service, for the interconnection of their respective public water systems to (1) facilitate the furnishing of water between systems and regions during a drought warning condition or state of water emergency as declared by the Governor within specific areas of the State pursuant to law, (2) balance demand with available water supplies, and (3) assure that sufficient water is available throughout the State during such conditions or emergencies. Each drought interconnection plan developed by a water purveyor would be subject to review and approval by the Department of Environmental Protection. Every water purveyor would be required to implement the drought interconnection system approved by the department within five years after the date the bill is enacted into law.
