The National Environmental Services Center (NESC) is distributing “Ten Steps to Maintain Critical Wastewater Services and Protect Public Health in an Emergency,” a poster designed to assist small communities in preparing for emergencies and ensuring wastewater security. The poster was created by a national panel of experts coordinated by NESC and supported by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
This poster was designed as a tool for use by local officials and wastewater treatment operators to improve their community’s security and emergency preparedness for man-made and natural disasters. Included on the poster are ten pocket cards for use as an emergency contact list. These ten steps are recommended as a good starting point for wastewater systems to conduct a vulnerability assessment and improve security and emergency preparedness.
