Welcome to the OEHS Water System Security Page!

National Homeland Security Alert Level

Today’s Security Level is:

Homeland Security Advisory

 

Is your water system prepared?

A written Emergency Response Plan (ERP) can save time, money and most of all--lives!!

 

ERP resources from EPA.

 

ERP resources from WV Rural Water Association.

 

If your system performed a Vulnerability Assessment (VA) in conjunction with the 2002 Bioterrorism Act, your ERP should address or be built around the VA findings.  

 

 

Pandemic Influenza

 

A pandemic is a global disease outbreak. Pandemic influenza happens when:

·        a new flu virus emerges

·        people have little or no immunity to the new virus

·        no vaccine is available

·        the new virus begins to cause serious illness

·        spreads easily person to person worldwide

While it’s difficult to predict when it will happen and how severe it will be, health experts agree that a pandemic will occur.

Is your system prepared to continue services to your customers during a pandemic outbreak?
