Risk and Resiliency Deadlines

What is AWIA and Risk and Resiliency?

Read below an excerpt from

On October 23, 2018, America's Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) was signed into law. AWIA Section 2013 requires community (drinking) water systems serving more than 3,300 people to develop or update risk assessments and emergency response plans (ERPs). The law specifies the components that the risk assessments and ERPs must address, and establishes deadlines by which water systems must certify to EPA completion of the risk assessment and ERP. The Federal Register Notice for New Risk Assessments and Emergency Response Plans for Community Water Systems is available.

How Can ARWA Help?

  1. Option 1 - You could go to EPA's website and complete your obligation on your own. (links above)

  2. Option 2 - Your ARWA Circuit Rider could assist you with the process and help you to complete your plan and remain in compliance for FREE.

  3. Option 3 - You could reach out to ARWA's Associate Member network and pay them for assistance. Their offerings are different from ARWA's FREE assistance and will offer you varying reports that go above and beyond the minimum regulatory requirements. This may be appropriate for your utility. This will be for you to decide, but we're happy to help answer any questions you may have if you would like to reach out to our office and discuss the options.
