EPA WSD Shares Earthquake Response Tools

Today, EPA has released three tools that drinking water and wastewater utilities can use to prepare for and respond to the impacts of earthquakes. These products include:


  • Earthquake Resilience Video
  • Earthquake Resilience Guide, and
  • Earthquake Interactive Maps.

The video, guide and maps were developed to help utilities identify if they are located in earthquake hazard areas, encourages them to take steps to understand the potential earthquake impacts, and provides actions on how to address potential risks.
