New Drinking Water Advisory Communication ToolboxCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sent this bulletin at 04/22/2013 09:01 AM EDT
Explore the newly updated Drinking Water Advisory Communication Toolbox for a practical guide and protocol for communicating with stakeholders and the public about water advisories.
The toolbox focuses on water systems and addresses the spectrum of situations that generate drinking water advisories—from a water main break to a hurricane, a drop in pressure, or intentional contamination.
You’ll find information on how to plan for, develop, implement, and evaluate drinking water advisories. The toolbox includes instructions on how to prepare before an event, what to do during an event, templates and tools to use, and recommendations for follow-up actions and assessments after an event to enable water systems to communicate effectively with partners and the public in order to protect public health.
The toolbox is now available in two formats:
- A comprehensive website, with features to make finding, using, and customizing information quick and easy:
- A complete PDF document that includes all content, tools, and templates
