Join EPA Water Loss Emergency Discussion

September is National Preparedness Month and communities across the nation are taking action to prepare for the next emergency.  US EPA is participating in these efforts by sending weekly communications on steps that can be taken at the local level to enhance resilience to water emergencies.
On September 15, from 3:00-4:00PM (eastern), EPA plans to host a facilitated discussion featuring a water loss emergency in a fictional community.  The scenario will have elements for water and wastewater utilities, public health agencies, hospitals, power utilities, emergency managers, police, fire, restaurants, businesses and others in the community who rely on water services and would benefit from identifying key preparedness actions.  Register to participate in the exercise today!
In addition, EPA’s Water Security Division shares weekly alerts and information updates.  If you would like to subscribe, please sign up for our What’s Going On? Newsletter from the Water Security Division.
