Natural Disaster Preparedness


An Emergency Preparedness Plan (EPP) is a packet of information that an affected utility submits to TCEQ for review and approval. The plan applies to affected utilities and contains information about the water system and how it operates under emergency conditions. The plan proposes to TCEQ how the affected utility will maintain a water pressure of 20 or 35 psi (pounds per square inch) throughout the distribution system when the power has been off for more than 24 hours during an emergency and contains emergency contact information.
