ALEXANDRIA, VA, April 5, 2007 -- In 2007, WEF, through a cooperative agreement with the EPA, will provide three, 3-day workshops in centralized locations across the U.S. on security and emergency response planning. Staff from POTWs treating 2.5 mgd or greater are invited to attend and will be eligible for travel & lodging reimbursement. Other interested parties may attend on a space available basis, but will not be eligible for travel scholarships. While not required to submit their Vulnerability Assessment (VA) or Emergency Response Plan (ERP) to the EPA, publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) managers and operators are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to receive no-cost, hands-on training on this important topic. Even if you have participated in a WEF security training in the past, this new program will be of benefit to you as it is equally relevant in preparing for, and responding to, man-made threats or natural disasters.

The 3-day WEF POTW training will focus on both man-made threats as well as natural disasters and the vulnerability self-assessment tool (VSAT&trad;) will continue to be the primary focus of the training. WEF has also structured the training to present the 14 features of an active and effective security program developed by the National Drinking Water Advisory Council.
