View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Water systems are secure because of the conscientious efforts of managers, engineers, and operators. Much of this security comes from accepted practices in the water industry. However, no water system can be perfectly safe. The costs for such security would be prohibitive. Society in developed countries has become accustomed to safe secure water systems because it is one of the distinguishing features of a successful economy and is often taken for granted. It is the job of proficient utility managers, engineers, and operators to use resources wisely to provide adequate safe and secure water. Professionals in the industry have done an exceptional job in this regard, but the risks still exist and in some areas are becoming more daunting. Security and emergency management of water systems goes beyond assessing the risks and vulnerabilities of water supply systems to get into the practical aspects of emergency planning and business continuity planning. No one knows where the next emergency will come from, but those who are prepared have a much better chance of surviving with minimal impact.
