This Savannah River Basin Drought Management Plan (SRBDMP) describes the Savannah River Basin reservoir management procedures to be followed as hydrologic conditions in the basin transition into drought. This document consolidates the initial 1989 Savannah River Basin Drought Contingency Plan and all subsequent updates into a single plan. The SRBDMP attempts to balance the negative impacts of the drought on the congressionally-authorized project purposes. We recognize the competing interests among project purposes—fish and wildlife management, hydropower, navigation, recreation, water quality and water supply—and the possibility that they may not be fully satisfied. This is a dynamic plan, subject to change as warranted by additional information.
