Appendix 1 : Purpose of DocumentThe National Capital Region (NCR) is home to unique characteristics including varied terrain andgeography; the international prominence of the major buildings and monuments in and aroundWashington, D.C.; service as the seat of all three branches of the federal government, and the mixeddistribution of industrial, commercial and office complexes (government and civilian) in the memberjurisdictions. The geographic, natural, governmental, and economic importance of the District makes ita susceptible to natural, man-made, and technological threats and hazards. For example,meteorological hazards, such as a hurricane, may affect the entire region, but industrialaccidents/incidents are more likely to affect those areas within the jurisdictions that haveconcentrations of industrial and commercial activity. Although Washington, D.C. has little industry, andis subject to relatively few natural hazards, its national prominence and internationally recognized andculturally significant monuments, buildings, and resources, makes it a prime target for terrorism. Eachcritical customer should conduct assessments of their organization’s vulnerabilities, risks, and likelyimpacts that each of these hazards/threats pose. The following provides a partial listing of the mostlikely potential hazards that the region faces.Natural Hazards, such as: Urban floods Winter storms Tornadoes Thunderstorms Hurricanes Extreme heat or extreme cold Virus or epidemic Drought EarthquakesMan-made, such as: Special events (e.g. Presidential Inaugurations, Papal Visit, MLB All-Star Game) Hazardous materials Workplace violence Transportation accidents/incidents Infrastructure outages (water, electricity, communications)Terrorism, such as: Conventional weapons (armed assailant incidents) Incendiary devices (e.g., car bombs, improvised explosive devices) Biological or chemical agents Radiological agent Nuclear agent Cyber-terrorism Weapons of mass destruction (one or more of the above)13

The consequences of these emergencies have the potential to disrupt essential services (e.g., drinkingwater service, wastewater services) or mobility, or adversely affect public health and safety and regionalinfrastructure to varying degrees. (Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments RegionalEmergency Coordination Plan)Water Sector Infrastructure InterdependenciesWater is essential to life. Human health, the economy, and many community services rely on water.Water infrastructure damage can adversely affect the operation of all other critical infrastructuresectors. Conversely, damage to other critical infrastructure sectors could negatively affect drinkingwater and wastewater services, thereby creating an infrastructure interdependency. Infrastructureinterdependencies are defined as the relationships between two or more critical infrastructures.The water sector, comprised of drinking water, wastewater, and storm water utilities, has beendesignated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as one of 16 critical infrastructure andkey resource (CIKR) sectors.Potential Consequences of Drinking Water and Wastewater ServiceDisruptionsPotential Drinking Water Service DisruptionConsequencesLack of water for consumption, cooking, bathing, flushing,fire suppression, etc.Loss of water for commercial irrigation, food supply,production of consumer needsDecreased public confidence in water supplyNeed to access alternate water supplies and/or issue apublic notice to boil waterAdverse economic effects as industry and localgovernments experience water service interruptionLoss of water for cooling (disabling electrical andtelecommunications equipment)Potential Wastewater Service DisruptionConsequencesSewage or storm water discharges (causingdamage to buildings, institutions, and landmarks)Release of hazardous chemicals into wastewater,negatively affecting public health and theenvironmentNeed to pre-treat wastewater before enterswastewater treatment plant; need to properlydispose of wastewater residualLack of wastewater services, posing public healthand sanitation issuesSewage or storm water discharges (causingdamage plants, animals, and aquatic life)Adverse economic impacts, loss of property, anddamaged service provider reputationCritical CustomersDC Water 'Critical Customers' are defined as consumers or service connections that are critical to communityresiliency (public safety or health), or demand a large volume of water to sustain economic resiliency, or service asusceptible population such as and specific to Washington D.C.: First Responder Organizations / Police / Fire / EMTs Hospitals / Medical Centers (including dialysis centers) Local / Federal Government Facilities necessary for public safety / health Mass Transit Stations Nursing Homes / Assisted Living / Homeless Shelters Potable Water Haulers Power Provider14

RICCS, or Regional Incident Communication and Coordination System, provides a system for D.C.area organizations to collaborate to prepare for an emergency. This system’s most used featureis an instant text messaging system that is used in capital area emergencies. The RICCS is notintended to supersede, replace, or duplicate the existing communications and informationsharing that routinely occurs among federal, state, and local emergency managementorganizations. Rather, it is intended to focus on information and coordination from a regionalperspective.Health Alert Network (HAN) is DC Health’s primary method of sharing cleared informationabout urgent public health incidents with public information officers; federal, state, territorial,tribal, and local public health practitioners; clinicians; and public health laboratories.WebEOC is a technology that tracks incidents and organizes responses. It includes systems forcommunication, information management, and data visualization.Local Emergency Management Agency contact your local emergency management agency foraccess to situational awareness platforms such as WebEOC.FEMA, or Federal Emergency Management Agency, issues updates and safety tips through anapp that customers can download to their smart devices. The FEMA website providessuggestions for emergency preparation and management.When DC Water issues a notice of service interruption, it will generally contain the following information. Recommended ingestion or inhalation rate of contaminated waterAppropriate response actionThe start time and, when available, the anticipated length of the outageThe current scope of the outage (e.g., local, or regional)How to notify customersAs a critical customer, it will be your responsibility to notify the employees, residents, or other peopleyour organization provides water for of the appropriate response action to an outage or notice. Set upan automated text, email, or phone call service so that all users will be properly notified. In the event ofan outage or notice, communicate clearly what the notice means, and direct the user to DC Water’swebsite for more information.Impacts of an outageDetermine how the temporary suspension of other utilities or public services may affect operations anddevelop plans to mitigate the impacts. These include: Transportation: Trains and busses require water to run, so a major water event may causesignificant interruptions in public transportation schedules. Anticipate low staff numbers in theevent of a city-wide interruption in water supply.Medical facilities: Medical facilities may be shut down or become overwhelmed with patients inthe event of a major water service interruption.Electricity: Power generators often require water for cooling, cleaning, and employee health.Water service interruptions may lead to power service interruptions.Shipping and Postal Services: May have to slow or stop their function.Food service providers: Restaurants and grocery stores may not be able to cook or clean.19

Appendix 3 : Resources for PlanningGeneral Planning InformationIn the event of a water outage incident, DC Water is under no obligation to provide alternate water toindividual customers and/or critical customers. Each individual customer/or critical customer should reviewand verify their alternate water plan.Understand Water Usage through a Water Use AuditCustomers should conduct a water use and vulnerabilities audit. The water use audit will help identifyemergency conservation measures that could be used. Also, this audit can identify conservationmeasures that are easy and simple to implement, resulting in less water use and lower water bills for thefacility.Customers should determine water needs for each of its facilities and identify those uses that can beavoided in the event of a water service interruption. Fill in the blanks of this chart to conduct a wateraudit.UseDrinkingWashing ionsBathingLaundryCleanlinessNecessary(potable or nonpotable)PotablePotableNon-potableGallons perperson (gpp)UsersEssential orNonEssentialTotal(Gallons)PotableTotalIdentify vulnerabilitiesAll facilities have different internal vulnerabilities. It is important to evaluate vulnerabilities and comeup with a plan to overcome any difficulties that might be faced when responding to an emergency. Thefollowing are some examples of vulnerabilities a facility may have.20

Enhanced risk of fireMany buildings across a wide areaChallenges communicating with residentsOnly one connection point with a water utilityServed by only one water utilityLack of potable water storageIn the event of a drinking water interruption, DC Water cannot provide water to individual customers orcritical customers. If potable water is essential for your organization’s operations, plan to have analternate water source. The following are some options for alternate water sources to consider. Internal water purification: Is a good choice if your organization has high water needs, but keepin mind it may not function during a power outage. Water storage: Is a good choice if your organization has ample space to store water. Pumping water from a nearby source: Is a good choice if your facility is located close to anotherwater provider and can secure access to resources to pump water to your facility.Plan to have supplies and equipment on hand that will reduce needed water. If items cannot be storedonsite, make arrangements ahead of time for delivery of supplies (Note: during a large-scale wateroutage numerous entities may be vying for the same resources/vendors). The following are someexamples of supplies that would reduce water need: Disposable linens and uniformsWaterless hand sanitizerSponge bathing suppliesPortable toiletsUnderstand DC Water’s RoleWhen planning for an emergency, it is helpful to understand DC Water’s role in emergency response.The following outlines what DC Water can and cannot assist with in the event of an emergency. Cleanup and damages are most often the responsibility of the property owner. The propertyowner is also required to maintain the sewer service line and remove any clogs in the lateral linebetween the facility and the utility owned main. Determine the feasibility of purchasing aninsurance policy or rider to existing policies to cover future cleanup and damage expenses fromsewer backups.Sewer main or lateral line backups or clogs caused by accidental occurrences or from weatherrelated events that result in property damage or other liabilities are most often not theresponsibility of DC Water.DC Water generally does not pay for cleanup costs or damages that result from sewer backups.If appropriate, provide additional information to DC Water to indicate that they are responsible,call (202) 787-2052 to file a claim. A detailed investigation is required prior to DC Water makinga final determination as to the cause of the backup.Alternate Water Supply Overview21

Anticipated Length of Outage 8 hours or less Determine need to limit available water supplies to critical functions only, as evaluated in wateruse audit. Use bottled water for drinking. Use large containers (e.g., 5-&10-gallon) for food prep, hand washing, and other specializedneeds. Use large containers and buckets for toilet flushing. Use back-up groundwater well(s), if available. Use non-potable water for HVAC, if appropriate. Label faucets as NON-POTABLE / DO NOT DRINK. Consider actions that may be necessary if outage continues longer than 8 hours.Anticipated Length of Outage unknown or greater than 8 hours Consult with water utility, health department, and other hospitals in the area. Assess the feasibility of potential actions and alternative water supply options. Limit available water supplies to critic
