This presentation will provide Water Utilities with the latest information on the America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) of 2018 specifically for Section 2013 Community Water System Risk and Resilience requirements. EPA and AWWA are working on guidance and technical assistance for AWIA Compliance to provide to Water Utilities from March through October 2019. This will include items such as a compliance fact sheet, technical assistance primer, baseline threat information document, tools, webinars, guidance to small water systems, and videos. This presentation will provide a summary of what is available and where to access and how to use the information, where appropriate. The current industry standards and methods (i.e., J100-10, G430-14, G440-17, etc.) for performing an All Hazards Risk and Resilience Assessment (RRA) and the Emergency Response Plan (ERP) development/update per the AWIA requirements will also be covered. Examples of what water utilities are doing to meet the AWIA requirements will be presented for as many different size utilities (Large, Medium, and Small) as possible. The examples will also include where possible different utility perspectives of those that have recently updated their 2003 to 2004 Security Vulnerability Assessments (SVAs) required by the 2002 Bioterrorism Act with an All Hazard Vulnerability Assessment using J100-10 to those that have not updated their original SVAs and/or ERPs.
