AWWA Releases Updated M19 Emergency Planning for Water and Wastewater Utilities
The fifth edition of the American Water Works Association’s M19 Emergency Planning for Water and Wastewater Utilities is now available.
Emergencies such as floods, tornadoes, wildfires, and hurricanes can disrupt a community’s ability to provide water and wastewater utility services. M19 prepares utilities with the capability to quickly restore water services when emergencies do strike. The new edition of M19 has been updated to reflect recent changes in the industry and also features case studies on recent emergency situations. Topics covered are emergency plan development, mutual aid partnerships, communication strategies, staff preparedness, and risk mitigation.
M19 Emergency Planning for Water Utilities and Wastewater Utilities, Fifth Edition can be purchased in the AWWA Store. The full manual is also available as a PDF download and as a PDF download and print set.
