The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in partnership with several state drinking water and wastewater programs, conducts water sector-focused emergency response tabletop exercises (TTXs). The goal is to raise awareness of the importance of water and wastewater services and the need for coordinated planning within a state. This fact sheet highlights lessons learned from exercises held in 2009, 2010, and 2011.
