Drought-Ready Communities: A Guide to Community Drought Preparedness

The University of Nebraska, Lincoln, National Drought Mitigation Center

This document is intended for communities throughout the U.S. that can use it to understand and reduce their drought risk.  The process outlined in the Guide is broad-based, recognizing that drought created problems that go beyond the scope of what whiter supplier alone can address. Worksheets and other exercises can help communities see how drought has affected water supplies and overall community well-being in the past. The Guide can also help communities identify their drought monitoring resources, so they can spot emerging drought. A planning section helps communities determine steps they can take to reduce their drought risk ahead of time. It also recommends planning responses to drought before the next one happens. The Guide includes case studies and an extensive resource collection on how other municipalities have planned for drought, including both processes and solutions.
