Abstract:

The horrific events of September 11, 2001 have forced us to consider and re-evaluate what new and intensified efforts should be made to further enhance security for water and waste water treatment systems. Emergency preparedness, security, and emergency action plans must be reevaluated and can no longer be limited to natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, and earthquakes. They also cannot be limited to catastrophic equipment failure, extended power outages, fire, chemical spills, or organized labor issues. Today's plans should be updated to include reducing risk of terrorist and sabotage threats as well.
