Emergency Water Supply Planning Guide

This document developed by the Department of Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control, and the American Water Works Association helps hospitals and healthcare facilities prepare for, respond to, and recover from a total or partial interruption of the facilities’ normal water supply. Water supply interruption can be caused by several types of events such as natural disaster, a failure of the community water system, construction damage or even an act of terrorism. Because water supplies can and do fail, it is imperative to understand and address how patient safety, quality of care, and the operations of your facility will be impacted.
