Planning for Decontamination Wastewater: A Guide for Utilities is the first national publication to explore the potential impacts of wastewater generated during the response to, and cleanup of, a chemical, biological, or radiological (CBR) terrorist attack. Wastewater security efforts to date have been focused largely on protecting the physical plant, its knowledge base, information technology and employees from a direct attack. Equally, if not more likely, is a scenario in which a wastewater utility is challenged indirectly by a terrorist attack on other targeted community assets.
Planning for Decontamination Wastewater: A Guide for Utilities (Guide) was developed by NACWA under a cooperative agreement with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The Guide is intended to increase the level of awareness within the wastewater community and provide guidance on how to ensure that wastewater infrastructure is protected in the event of an attack. Hard copies can be ordered through NACWA’s online publication page.
