Abstract The Water Security initiative is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program that addresses the risk of intentional contamination of drinking water distribution systems. Initiated in response to Homeland Security Presidential Directive 9, the overall goal is to design and deploy contamination warning systems for drinking water utilities. EPA is implementing the Water Security initiative in three phases: (1) development of a conceptual design that achieves timely detection and appropriate response to drinking water contamination incidents; (2) demonstration and evaluation of the conceptual design in full-scale pilots at drinking water utilities; and (3) issuance of guidance and conduct outreach to promote voluntary national adoption of effective and sustainable drinking water contamination warning systems.

Contents Notes This document will assist drinking water utilities with the development of recommended standard operating procedures for day-to-day operations of the monitoring and surveillance components of a contamination warning system. The guidance emphasizes development of an operational strategy in a manner that integrates the components to provide a timely indication of a possible contamination incident in the distribution system. A case study of the operational strategy developed for the Cincinnati contamination warning system pilot is presented.
