Description:

Report

Purpose/Objective:

Recently, water security research efforts have focused on the advancement of methods for mitigating contamination threats to drinking water systems (see for example, Ostfeld 2006; AWWA 2005; Murray 2004). A promising approach for the mitigation of both accidental and intentional contamination is a Contamination Warning System (CWS), a system to deploy and operate online sensors, other surveillance systems, rapid communication technologies, and data analysis methods to provide an early indication of contamination (U.S. EPA 2005c).
