The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the American Water Ways Association (AWWA) developed the 2019 Emergency Water Supply Planning Guide (EWSP) to help healthcare facilities prepare for, respond to, and recover from a water supply interruption. The updated EWSP includes guidance on how to assess water usage, response capabilities, and water supply alternatives that can help ensure patient safety in healthcare facilities in the event of an emergency.
