The American Water Works Association’s (AWWA’s) Utility Risk & Resilience Certificate Program is intended to help utilities and consultants working with utilities apply sound risk and resilience management strategies that will facilitate compliance with the America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) of 2018. Signed into law in October, AWIA requires community water systems serving 3,300 or more persons to conduct a risk and resilience assessment and develop an emergency response plan that must be actively updated every five years (WaterISAC has established a portal page dedicated to information and resources related to AWIA). The certificate program consists of five courses that will teach about AWIA’s requirements and that include examples of how utilities can use resources, including AWWA standards (G430, G440, J100, and Cybersecurity Guidance), that facilitate compliance with provisions of AWIA. The first of the courses, Facilitating Compliance with America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018, is available now for free. Read more about the Utility Risk & Resilience Certificate Program at AWWA.
