Security Vulnerability Self-Assessment Guide for Very Small (<3,300) Systems (6-02)

This Security Vulnerability Self-Assessment Guide developed by ASDWA and NRWA in consultation with EPA, is targeted for drinking water systems serving less than 3,300 people and is designed to help these systems assess their critical components and identify security measures that should be implemented. The document is provided electronically in MS Word and .pdf formats that are intended for states and trainers to use, distribute, copy, add specific contact names, and customize for the locality of each system as appropriate. The document includes an emergency contact list, a phone threat identification checklist, and states may wish to attach their model emergency response plans as well.
