Water Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security

This book discusses the security and vunerabilities of our nation's water resources. Written after 9/11 in response to engineers, plant managers, and others involved with managing water resources, this book addresses the need to incorporate security updates into existing facilities and to plan for them in new sites. Chapters offer professional advice on designing, operating, and maintaining water distribution and wastewater treatment systems. They discuss assessing vulnerabilities in the system, monitoring the plants from remote locations, and considering environmental impacts of water systems. This practical guide will be useful to anyone responsible for designing or securing a water source.
