Oct. 10, 2003 -- G. Tracy Mehan III, Assistant Administrator for the Office of Water, has announced the availability of the Environmental Protection Agency's Security Product Guide.
The Agency developed the Security Product Guide especially for drinking water and wastewater utilities to assist treatment plant operators and utility managers in reducing risks and providing protection against possible natural disasters and intentional terrorist attacks.
Individual products evaluated in this Guide will be applicable to distribution systems, wastewater collection systems, pumping stations, treatment processes, main plant site and remote sites, personnel entry, chemical delivery and storage, and computer or other automated control systems for water and wastewater treatment systems, including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems.
This Security Product Guide is a work in progress and will be updated regularly to ensure that the most recent information on security technologies is available. Users should check back frequently for the latest updates at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/security .
