Security and Emergency Response

Protecting your system

Drinking water systems throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania should be aware of and prepared to address numerous security related issues. Emergency Response Plans, Uninterrupted System Service Plans, and Criminal History Checks for system operators are some tools water systems can use to reduce the vulnerability of facilities to a wide range of natural and man-made threats. These tools also prepare the system to respond quickly and effectively in the event of an emergency.
