Risk and Resilience Assessmet

America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 (AWIA), Section 2013, requires community water systems serving more than 3,300 people to take action.

Risk and resilience refers to the preparation that utilities must undergo to avoid disruptions in water quality and delivery due to emergencies such as natural disasters, accidents, or intentional acts. The 2018 Act places a greater emphasis on cybersecurity, as it relates to municipal water systems. Regardless of size or location, utilities should prepare for emergencies before they occur.

Risk & Resilience Experience

  • We prepared Vulnerability Assessments for more than 30 Chicagoland communities to assist them in achieving compliance with the Bioterrorism Act of 2002.

  • Numerous members of our professional staff have completed the Utility Risk and Resilience Certificate Program through the American Water Works Association (AWWA).

  • We have an infrastructure operations group consisting of 8 certified water and wastewater operators with water utility experience in over 50 municipalities.

  • We have partnered with an expert technology firm with world-wide cybersecurity expertise to assist as necessary.

We can walk you through the complex certification process with the EPA to ensure your compliance with this federal mandate efficiently, accurately, and before the deadline.
