Drinking water security and emergency preparedness

Top Ten List

Things you can do to protect your water system from contamination and harm

Drinking water security and emergency response have long been essential in managing drinking water systems and they are high priorities for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

The events of September 11, 2001 and natural disasters such as the Hurricanes of 2005 have heightened concerns among drinking water professionals and citizens about the security of safe and reliable drinking water. Natural events and intentional acts of destruction that previously seemed unlikely or "low risk" are now important considerations.

The focus of these webpages is to help water systems to understand regulations that may affect them, and to centralize the growing library of security information and resources available to assist water utilities in staying current with water system security and emergency response issues.
