On Wednesday, the Dallas City Council will discuss updating the city's 4-year-old water conservation and drought contingency plans, as this is shaping up to be yet another dry, dusty year. The update is necessary but won't come cheap: If and when council gives the okee-doke, the city will pay Alan Plummer Associates, Inc. more than $600,000 to provide "engineering services" necessary for the update, required by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality every five years.
