The National Infrastructure Protection Plan identifies water and wastewater (WWW) systems as critical infrastructure (CI). These systems are critical to the communities’, public health, and economic development. The interdependencies between WWW, other CI sectors, and emergency management requires a common understanding. This course provides an opportunity to work together to improve community resiliency.
This two day course will guide participant through issues concerning preparing for, responding to, mitigating, and recovering from incidents affecting WWW facilities. In addition, participants will be introduced to the natural and man-made hazards to which WWW systems may be vulnerable.
