Achieve and Maintain Compliance with SDWA in Washington Series 1 of 3: Small Systems Resilience and Emergency Response Planning

These workshops will count towards Continuing Education Units that will be recognized by the State Water Resources Control Board. Each two-hour module will count as 2 Washington Continuing Education Units, attending the entire series will count as 6 Washington Continuing Education Units. 

What is resilience? Resilience when applied to community water systems is the ability to adapt and withstand emergencies, malevolent acts and natural hazards. The goal is to maintain a system's function and mission and be able to rapidly return to normal conditions. A water system emergency is any situation that could potentially cause a water outage, contamination, or threat to public health. Congress passed the America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) in 2018. AWIA takes an all-hazards approach. It addresses threats ranging from malevolent attacks to natural hazards, technological hazards, and other human caused emergencies. Its core requirements include conducting a Risk and Resilience Assessment (RRA) and developing an Emergency Response Plan (ERP). Although it only applies to systems serving 3,300 persons or more, the tools and templates introduced in this workshop will benefit all systems large and small.

At the completion of this lesson, participants will be able to:

·       Recall AWIA requirements for community water systems.

·       Summarize benefits of using the RCAP/AWWA Small Systems RRA Worksheet.

·       Describe how to conduct an effective RRA field assessment.

·       Identify gaps in your Emergency Response Plan.

·       Identify strengths and weaknesses in your system's risk mitigation practices.

The intended audience is operators, managers, board members and anyone responsible for emergency response planning.
