The Strategic Overview of Disaster Management for Water and Wastewater brings together those personnel from within a jurisdiction who would be required to manage or react to any natural or man-made incident that could potentially affect a water or wastewater utility. This course introduces the various natural and man-made hazards to which water and wastewater systems may be vulnerable and the potential effects the hazards may induce. Participants are guided through portions of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Response Protocol Toolbox to identify steps in the response and recovery processes.
