Pursuant to RCSA 19-13-B102(w), all Community PWS are required to have emergency generator provisions for all critical facilities as well as an Emergency Contingency and Response Plan. The DWS has created a template for Community PWS to use to demonstrate compliance with this regulatory requirement.
