"HEALTHY PEOPLE THROUGH HEALTHY ENVIRONMENTS IN WV"

     

 

 

   

 

Although the number of documented cases of swine flu in West Virginia is currently low, your water system should consider these possibilities if the illness continues to spread.  Now is a good time to prepare answers to the following questions:

  • Are you prepared for 40 to 50 percent employee absenteeism?  Even if they arenít ill themselves, key employees may have to be caretakers for sick family members.
  • What does it take for your system to maintain minimum operations?
  • Do you have simple instructions that would allow others to operate key system functions?
  • Can you identify sources of fuel and chemicals if one or more of your suppliers were forced to shut down their operations due to illness?
