EPA WSD Offers “How To” VSAT and WHEAT Training

Not sure what’s different about the updated VSAT 6.0 tool?  Unclear on how to access WHEAT version 3 and what it contains?  Uncertain as to what either of these terms mean?  As a start, VSAT stands for Vulnerability Self Assessment Tool and WHEAT is the acronym for Water Health and Economic Analysis Tool.  Both tools have undergone recent upgrades and improvements to make them more useful to the water sector.

EPA’s Water Security Division is hosting a series of 2-day workshops around the nation to help water and wastewater utilities – and the state staff who assist those systems with risk/vulnerability assessments – understand the tool components and make better use of these enhanced tools.  Workshops have been scheduled between February and June 2015 in ten different states.  Registration is open now.  Please see the flyer below to learn more about the classroom training topics, dates, and locations.

Please share this information with water and wastewater systems in your state who have a “need to know” and consider attending yourself so that you’ll be better positioned to support your water systems as they work through approaches and techniques to enhance their security posture.

For questions related to these workshops, please contact Dan Schmelling at EPA-WSD schmelling.dan@epa.gov
