Decontamination is a major component in enabling a water system to recover from a contamination event. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Water Security Division within the Office of Water is working with its partners in developing a decontamination strategy to address
the key water sector challenges and needs. WSD received initial feedback from its partners and stakeholders on critical water sector decontamination issues and challenges. It is working with the Government Coordinating Council (GCC) and the Sector Coordinating Council (SCC) to establish
a method to examine these issues and identify priority decontamination concerns and needs to enable the timely recovery and "return to service" of utility operations impacted by contamination incidents.
