The Strategic Overview of Disaster Management for Water and Wastewater Utilities course provides critical guidance when planning for and responding to disasters that affect drinking water and wastewater systems. Participants will be introduced to the various natural and man-made (accidental or intentional) disasters to which water and wastewater systems may be vulnerable and the potential effects of disasters. Participants will be guided through portions of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Response Protocol Toolbox (RPTB) to identify steps in the response and recovery processes. Case studies on a variety of disaster incidents, as well as hypothetical situations for water and wastewater incidents are examined. Participants are also given the opportunity to practice developing a disaster response plan for a disaster.
