Community -Based Water Resiliency Guide – EPA

The Community-Based Water Resiliency Guide is designed to help water utilities and communities prepare for water service interruptions before an emergency occurs by:

  • Promoting a better understanding of public-private sector interdependencies.
  • Fostering a greater understanding of water infrastructure and the potential impacts from a loss of service.
  • Identifying the actions and resources needed to increase resilience by starting a conversation between water utilities and the community.
  • Assisting stakeholders in building strong response plans for water service interruptions.
