America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 (AWIA '18) requires community water systems serving 3,300 or more persons to conduct a risk and resilience assessment and develop an emergency response plan that must be actively updated every five years. 

It is important to remember the Assessments are POPULATION based, not connection based. This means most utilities are required to meet the deadlines.

The assessments are based on an All Hazards Consequence Management Approach, including malevolent acts, natural hazards, and any other risk that may impact any operation of a utility. The assessments must include cyber security risks. 

Once the assessment is complete, each utility must complete an Emergency Response Plan addressing the details of the assessment six months later.

Deadlines for meeting the requirements of the AWIA vary depending on population. It is estimated that even in smaller systems, the assessment process alone may take at least three months or longer to complete. Failure to complete the assessments on time may result in substantial fines. Therefore, it is essential utilities understand how to efficiently complete their assessments in a timely manner.

Why you Should Register:

This two-hour webcast will provide specific information and tools for utilities to begin the process to complete their assessments. It will also provide essential information for conducting a cyber security assessment, as well as how to understand the next steps in the assessment process and developing an emergency response plan.

Presenters include Elston Johnson with a step by step approach to completing the assessment process, Doug Short, Chair of the Texas Section AWWA Resiliency and Security Committee with tools to conduct a Cyber Security Assessment, plus we will be joined by Kevin Morley, of our AWWA Washington office, who understands the full intent of the law, led the development of the new Risk and Resilience Certification Program, the AWWA Cyber Tool, and has been a leader in development of the All Hazards Consequence Management approach to resiliency and response.
