Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) requires all Community Water Systems (CWS) such as MLGW to develop drought management plans as stand‐alone documents, separate from the MLGW Emergency Operations Plan (EOP).

The purpose of this plan is to ensure MLGW supplies consistent, reliable, and safe drinking water to meet the needs of all residential, commercial and industrial customers of Memphis, Arlington, Lakeland and areas of unincorporated Shelby County. This plan does not cover the Cities of Millington, Bartlett, Collierville, and Germantown who each own and operate their own water systems.

The plan is reviewed and updated every three years • MLGW developed the first plan in 2016 which was approved by the MLGW Board on September 7, 2016.

MLGW reviewed and updated the plan in 2019 which was approved by the MLGW Board on October 10, 2019.

Until October 4, 2022, customers can provide feedback on this three-year cycle's revisions by emailing
