AWIA (America's Water Infrastructure Act) Compliance

Are you aware of the requirements of America's Water Infrastructure Act and how it may affect your utility?

America's Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 was into law on October 23, 2018.  It requires every community-type public water supply that serves a population of 3,300 or greater to: 

  1.  Conduct a Risk and Resilience Assessment

  2.  Prepare or Revise their Emergency Response Plan

  3.  Submit a certification letter to the USEPA certifying that these two tasks have been accomplished

  4.  Review and update both documents every five year thereafter

  5.  Maintain records of compliance and updates for five years following certification

The Risk and Resilience Assessment must take an "All-Hazards Approach" meaning that it requires you to assess your utilities risk and resilience to:

  1.  Malevolent Acts by both insiders and outsiders

  2.  Natural disasters

  3.  Cyber-security threats

  4.  Proximity and Transportation hazards

The deadlines for submitting the certification letters are shown in the table below:

The Risk and Resilience Assessment process is a complex and time-consuming process.  We highly encourage utilities to get started with the process as early as possible and not wait until the last several months before the established deadlines.
