March 3-9 is Severe Weather Preparedness Week is asking that we all be a “force of nature” during Severe Weather Preparedness Week.  That means…”know your risk, take action and be an example by sharing what you have done with your friends, family, coworkers, and others.”

Leading by example, John Whitler of EPA’s Water Security Division, has written an interesting post to EPA’s “Greenversations” blog.  He talks about weather risks, the value of advance planning for water utilities and the communities they serve, and how participating in a WARN (water and wastewater agency response network) can help utilities and their communities not only be better prepared but better able to respond and recover from severe weather and other emergencies.  John’s post is called “A WARN-ing for Water Utilities” and can be read at
