Massachusetts Drought Management Planning Guidance for Public Water Suppliers 

MWWA Course ID: MWWA 24-005 


Massachusetts Water Works Association (MWWA) is partnering with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and Comprehensive Environmental Inc (CEI) to provide this virtual training session that will assist Public Water Suppliers (PWS) in understanding and implementing the newly released 2024 Massachusetts Drought Management Plan Guidance document. This document will help PWS develop their own system-specific drought plan. This is the second of a 2-part series that will go over the components of the guidance document in more depth to help the PWS understand the data needed to develop metrics for monitoring their system and measures that might be implemented to try to prolong water supply in the face of drought conditions. (The first session in this 2-part series is a virtual roundtable (no TCHs offered) on June 11, 2024, to give a briefer introduction to the guidance, see info here.)     

 Learning Objectives: 

  • Review data and resource requirements for local drought management planning 

  • Learn to implement each step of local drought management planning 

  • Discuss important tips and lessons learned from PWS case studies  

This course is approved for 1.5 TCHs (Training Contact Hours) for Massachusetts Drinking Water Operators. It will be taught using the Zoom platform.  Participants will need to have a reliable high-speed internet connection and computer device with both video and audio capability.  Please review our Student Expectations for Attending Virtual Training at
