Abstract:

This report provides information that will be useful to the Army Facility Engineer in developing a water supply contingency plan that can be implemented when water utility components are lost or damaged due to a natural or man-made disaster. Such an emergency plan is required to maintain water supplies sufficient to meet priority demands such as firefighting, hospitals, and mission-essential industries. This report summarizes the various types of disasters that can impair a water utility and provides a basis for estimating water requirements during an emergency. In addition, it provides information for assessing the vulnerability of various system components to damage from disaster, and gives a checklist of activities to be carried out in developing and updating an emergency water plan.
