Pandemic Resilience for Water and Wastewater Utilities
This interactive, user-friendly guide provides good practices, real-world examples, and key resources for responding to pandemic emergencies and building long-term resilience. The guide contains four main sections:
- Supply Chain Issues for Cleaning Products and Personal Protective Equipment
- Staffing Key Positions
- Return to Work
- Communications/Information Sharing
EPA held state-level virtual workshops in California, Indiana, and New York in late 2020 and early 2021 to facilitate the sharing of initial response actions and experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. The guide relays good practices from small- to large-sized utilities and their emergency response partners that participated in these workshops.
