Contamination of a drinking water system can cause illness, disease, or even death. A water system can be contaminated, damaged or disrupted through intentional terrorist or criminal actions or by an accident. Intentional contamination poses one of the most serious threats to a water system because of the intent to harm human health or cause damage. When a contamination threat is received or a contamination incident happens, it is critical that you act quickly and effectively to protect public health and the environment. This handbook should help you to develop your own utility's plan for quickly and effectively responding to contamination threats or contamination incidents, even in situations where information may be limited.
