GLRPPR Sector Resource: Power Resilience Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities

Title:
Power Resilience Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities

Abstract:
Power resilience enables drinking water and wastewater utilities to continue to provide their vital services even when there are power outages. Water utilities can increase their power resilience by improving their relationships with their electric providers and local emergency management agencies. As resources and funding permit, water utilities can secure generators and develop fuel management plans to maintain operations without grid power. On-site power and energy efficiency also offer opportunities for water utilities to manage their power requirements. Power resilience requires on-going efforts to build strong relationships with response partners and ensure the necessary resources are well maintained and ready for use during an emergency.
