Topic: 
Water Distribution During a Drought
Organization: 
Atlanta-Fulton County Emergency Management Agency (AFCEMA)

The Atlanta-Fulton County Emergency Management Agency is the primary emergency management agency for Fulton County and Atlanta. When water resources that serve this area fell to historical low levels, AFCEMA acknowledged the need of a plan to distribute water during the potential drought. An emergency water distribution plan was developed. This plan includes indentifying the optimal location of Logistic Staging Areas (LSA) for pre-event staging and inventory buffering, and Points of Distributions (POD) that would serve the entire Fulton County’s population. Trade-off between service level and implementation costs was analyzed. The solution also includes layout and processes design, as well as labor scheduling and water replenishment planning tools for the PODs
