EPA Announces Release of the 2015 Water and Wastewater Sector Specific Plan

After lengthy review by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), EPA is pleased to announce the publication of the 2015 Water and Wastewater Sector Specific Plan (SSP).  This document nipp-ssp-water-2015-508  is for your review and use

The purpose of the SSP is to guide and integrate the efforts intended to secure and strengthen the resilience of the Sector’s infrastructure.  The Water SSP also describes how the Sector, through its voluntary partnership mechanisms, has developed a strategy – the Vision, Mission, Goals, Objectives, and Milestones – to manage the complexity within the Sector in a way that moves it toward realizing its security and resilience goals.  Finally, the Water SSP describes how the Sector measures the performance of its activities so that progress can be measured and continuously improved.

The Water SSP is designed to be a “living document” that not only establishes the strategic framework for achieving the Sector’s security and resilience ends, but also encourages tactical flexibility with respect to the means.
