The Cedar Rapids Water Division prepared the Drought Contingency Plan with community input during the fall of 2012. Cedar Rapids City Council adopted the Drought Contingency Plan on February 26, 2013. The Cedar Rapids Utilities Department regularly reviews and updates the contingency plan based on community feedback and operational concerns. If you have comments or questions about the drought plan, please email watermail@cedar-rapids.org or call (319) 286-5900.

The drought plan is set up in stages depending upon the severity of the conditions. Each stage has a variety of actions that are recommended and/or required. The Drought Contingency Plan contains the complete description of each stages' requirements, enforcement, and definitions.

This table summarizes each stage and its required and recommended actions:
