The BWA Board of Directors adopted an updated Drought Contingency Plan and Emergency Water Management Plan at a special meeting on April 29, 2014. The Plan outlines actions BWA will take to insure adequate water is available for the safety and health of all Benbrook consumers caused by water supply limitations. Potential supply limitations include a limited water supply, possible contamination, delivery system limitations and required system repairs. The Plan outlines three water restriction stages and lists the triggers, use reduction goals, and water use reduction actions to be taken for each stage. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires the plan to be reviewed at least every five years. The next planned update will be by May 1, 2019.

Above-ground backflow preventers are subject to freezing during continuous temperatures below 32 degrees. Here are some things you can do to protect them from damage:
RPZ and PVB assemblies have an isolation valve before the assembly. Locate this valve and turn it off.
- Take the caps off of the test cocks and open them. This will drain water out of the assembly.
- Insulate piping and cover entire assembly.
Some methods of insulation are special pouches which can be purchased from irrigation supply companies or wrapping old newspaper around piping and securing with tape. Plastic covers can also be purchased from irrigation supply companies, or a plastic trash can will work, as well.
