EPA Tips on Hurricane Planning and Recovery

Although predictions for this year’s hurricane season suggest that major storm activity is less likely than average, it is still wise to be prepared. EPA’s Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water has developed several web pages and links to pre-event planning and post-event recovery efforts for water and wastewater systems as well as the customers they serve. Ranging from what to do before a hurricane strikes to regulatory requirements related to shutdown operations, the site has lots of good information.
