Structural and Non-Structural Project Components for Drought Mitigation
Tracy Bouvette


Drought mitigation can be performed through the combined efforts of local and regional management programs and the planning for and implementation of structural and non-structural projects. Given the types of impacts caused by drought, coupled with ever changing water supply and demand factors, existing local and regional management programs may not allow for adequate protection of businesses and individual citizens. Longer range planning and implementation of structural and/or non-structural projects may be needed as conditions change to provide adequate drought protection. This chapter presents a listing of potential structural and non-structural projects that may be considered for drought mitigation.
