AWIA Risk and Resilience Assessment Checklist

Community water systems serving less than 3,300 people are not required to conduct risk and resilience assessments under AWIA, however, it is recommended that these systems use this, or other guidance, to learn how to conduct risk and resilience assessments and address threats from malevolent acts and natural hazards that threaten safe drinking water.

(Serving greater than 3,300 but less than 50,000 people)

Guidance for Small Community Water Systems on Risk and Resilience Assessments under America’s Water Infrastructure Act

For larger CWSs, EPA recommends the Vulnerability Self-Assessment Tool (VSAT) Web 2.0 or an alternaterisk assessment method.
