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. The Emergency Contingency & Response Plan Template to comply with RCSA19-13-B102(w) is now available for PWS use on the Forms and Applications Quick Link of the DWS webpage. Please note that this template is only to demonstrate compliance with RCSA 19-13-B102(w) and is not a substitution for large CWS in also meeting the requirements of RCSA 25-32(d)-3(d).
