Rural Water - Quarter 2, 2018 - 31

As the primary water and wastewater
trainer in the state of Utah, RWAU makes
certain that a portion of its annual training
curriculum is focused on emergency
response. Most systems have done
Vulnerability Assessments (VA) and
Emergency Response Plans (ERP) but
many fail to take a new look at their
VAs following a system upgrade or to
exercise their ERP on a regular basis.
Keeping an annual focus on emergency
response serves as a reminder to not let
their work become out-of-date. RWAU
also participates in state-sponsored
emergency planning to ensure that
the water and wastewater sectors are
recognized for the essential services they
provide and are incorporated into the first
response following an emergency.
The availability of staff for
administration and for response led
to RWAU becoming the administrator
of the Utah Water and Wastewater
Agency Response Network (UTWARN)
when it was formed in 2010. When an
emergency occurs, RWAU is able to
determine the need for inter-agency
response and, through its member
contacts, activate needed resources.
This ensures that the help that arrives

is the help that is needed. Being the
administrator of UTWARN also means
that RWAU can help bring all sizes and
types of water and wastewater systems
together to assist each other, building a
stronger and more flexible network.
Although the types of emergencies
and the response may be different in
the intermountain west from that of
the Southeast, some things remain the
same: the need to plan, revise plans
based on experience and exercise plans
so responders are familiar with them.
Interaction with others who may be
