EPA Publishes Two New Incident Action Checklists for the Water Sector – Cybersecurity and Harmful Algal Blooms

 

Two New Incident Action Checklists for the Water Sector

The EPA Water Security Division (WSD) published ten “rip & run” style checklists in January 2015 to facilitate water sector response immediately before, during and after an emergency. The concise Incident Action Checklists outline critical measures that drinking water and wastewater utilities can take to protect their system against various natural hazards.

 

WSD is excited to announce the publication of two new Incident Action Checklists: Cybersecurity and Harmful Algal Blooms.  As with the 2015 versions, these new checklists include potential impacts to the water sector; actions to prepare for, respond to and recover from the specific incident; a contacts section that utilities can fill out with their own local information; and a resource section. With a concise structure and targeted focus, the Checklists will provide a unique resource focusing on response actions which will greatly increase the water sector’s resilience to cybersecurity and harmful algal bloom incidents.
