National Infrastructure Protection Plan says local governments need to talk about water
March 12, 2009
The Federal government's 2009 National Infrastructure Protection Plan
includes comments (in section 188.8.131.52) discussing the role of local government agencies in protecting their critical infrastructure assets. One of the bullet points included among the recommendations for local government authorities working with municipal water systems
is "conducting critical infrastructure/key resource protection public awareness activities." DJ Gongol & Associates has been participating in projects with the Nebraska AWWA
to help promote public information and train water system operators in better ways to work with the media to educate the public about water-related issues. Our presentations
on media relations for the water industry have been given at two conferences in the last 12 months, and we are available to share the same information at other events.
