Scenario 5: This scenario involves the intentional contamination of Zenith City’s water supply reservoir when a “dirty” bomb explodes by the water intake.

Scenario 6: This scenario involves the destruction of a portion of the water treatment facility by a suicide truck bomber, causing the release of chlorine gas.

Scenario 7: This scenario involves a railroad workers strike that leads to the inability of the Zenith City water system to receive their chlorine shipment.

The tabletop exercises on this CD were mainly developed to train water and wastewater utility workers in how to exercise their emergency response plans and use the Response Protocol Toolbox and other guidance documents in the planning process. Additionally, the exercises contain secondary roles for health officials, fire, police, emergency medical services, and local, state, and federal officials.
