Workshop Description

 

         On June 12, 2002, President Bush signed the Public Health Security and Bio-Terrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 into law.  In relevant parts, it requires drinking water utilities to prepare vulnerability assessments and emergency response plans and for EPA to review current and future methods to prevent, detect and respond to the introduction of contaminants into water systems.  

         On June 27-28, 2002 EPA sponsored the first workshop, convened by Rutgers/CIMIC, on “Advanced Technologies in Real-Time Monitoring and Modeling for Drinking Water Safety and Security”. The presentations and findings from this highly successful and well-attended workshop can be found at http://cimic.rutgers.edu/workshop.html.  This first workshop identified several advanced sensor technologies under development or near ready for deployment.  Also, presented at the workshop were models of source water systems or distribution systems that could be used for real time monitoring utilizing such advanced sensors.  The conferees agreed that real time systems are the next step for water model development, to provide early warning alerts and response actions for the drinking water utilities. In addition, the panels agreed that such systems were indeed feasible with today’s modeling capabilities and offer the potential to serve as effective response tool to natural or deliberate acts of terrorism.  Another, major outcome emerging from this workshop was the establishment of a consortium of water utilities, government agencies and universities that have agreed to pursue a prototype real time monitoring and modeling system.  

         The workshop will cover these areas:

·         Perspectives on Drinking Water Security from Government, Industry, and Academia,

·         Reports on Technical Readiness Level of sensors and models,

·         Breakout sessions to define and end to end prototype early warning system.

        The first day, is planned as a plenary session devoted to gaining a general status on steps being taken nationally by agencies and utilities in response to September 11th.  In addition, a number of technical talks are scheduled to assess the readiness of proposed systems.  The second day is aimed at meeting the third objective to formulate the consortium prototype. The invitees will be asked to split into breakout sessions; devoted mainly to identifying the near and long term advanced technologies in their domain of expertise, for prototyping a real time drinking water alert system.

Workshop Objectives

 

The main objectives of this second workshop are:

1.       learn of steps being taken elsewhere at the Federal, State and Local levels on early warning systems,

2.       further assess the progress made on the integration and implementation of advanced sensor technologies into real time modeling   capabilities, and

3.       propose and formulate near and long term design elements of prototype systems for implementation by the consortium.
