Updated EPA Products:
Earthquake Resilience Products To build resilience to earthquakes at drinking water and wastewater utilities, EPA has released a suite of products, including a video, guide, and interactive maps. The Earthquake Resilience Video called “Surviving the Quake” builds awareness of earthquakes for utility risk managers and community leaders. The Earthquake Resilience Guide can help utilities better understand the earthquake threat, assess the vulnerability of utility assets, and pursue mitigation techniques and funding options. The guide draws upon the experience of actual water utilities that have successfully implemented mitigation measures to address earthquake threats. The Earthquake Interactive Maps enable utilities to determine if they are in an earthquake-prone area. Small and medium utilities, especially those that have not yet taken steps to address their seismic hazards will benefit from these products targeted to the water sector.

Tabletop Exercise Tool for Drinking Water and Wastewater Utilities EPA has just updated the Tabletop Exercise (TTX) Tool for drinking water and wastewater utilities. The TTX tool provides users with the resources to plan, conduct and evaluate tabletop exercises. The 2018 version of the TTX tool contains 12 customizable all-hazards scenarios (e.g., natural disasters, man-made incidents) that will assist utilities to practice, test and help improve emergency response plans and procedures.
