Air Force regulations require the Medical Treatment Facility Commander to assure water vulnerability studies are conducted for employment sites and fixed installations. This technical report describes the emergency water planning program used by civilian water utilities. It also discusses proposed civil engineering plans for Energy Vulnerability Assessments within the Air Force. Both approaches operate in a similar manner--identifying threats, evaluating the impact of each threat, comparing supply and demand, correcting deficiencies. The report summarizes planning data for water consumption, discusses chemical agents and biological agents and their treatment, and summarizes short-term water quality standards. The report recommends bioenvironmental engineers work closely with civil engineering on all aspects of base potable water emergency planning, but to focus their vulnerability study on medically-related areas.
