Drinking Water Advisory Toolbox

On February 14, ASDWA and AWWA cohosted a webinar designed to showcase a new Drinking Water Advisory Toolbox.  This Toolbox provides a protocol and practical guide for communicating with stakeholders and the public about water advisories that is based upon research and identified practices. It is designed to supplement – not replace – information that systems may already have such as the PN Handbook or a CCR template.  The Toolbox offers a comprehensive “how to” manage effective communication before, during, and after an event or situation that warrants communicating with consumers, customers, and commercial users.

You can download the Toolbox, the powerpoint slides, and view the webinar recording from the ASDWA website at http://www.asdwa.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=Page.viewPage&pageId=606

The Drinking Water Advisory Toolbox project was a collaborative effort among ASDWA, AWWA, CDC, USEPA, ASTHO, and NEHA.  If you have any comments or feedback about the Toolbox, CDC has agreed to take the lead for all of the involved organizations.  Please send your thoughts, suggestions or reactions to Catherine Hough at CHough@cdc.gov.
