The Water Environment Research Foundation has developed a Wastewater Emergency Response Plan Guidance Document. This tool will assist wastewater systems in the preparation of their Emergency Response Plans (ERPs). It is intended to help wastewater systems organize their planning efforts, and to provide a reference for the types of information and data that should be included in an emergency response plan. The document is available in three modules. Click below to access the modules.
