WaterISAC convened a webinar on long-duration power outages which featured Dr. Paul Stockton, a well-regarded expert on disaster preparedness and the implications of extended power outages; Mr. Nick Santillo, American Water's Chief Security Officer and a member of the Water Sector Coordinating Council and the WaterISAC Board; and Ms. Lauren Wisniewski, an environmental engineer with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Water Security Division. The speakers discussed how extended power outages could turn a disaster into a catastrophe, ideas and opportunities for building preparedness for these events, and activities and resources focused on Black Sky outages and resilience, including EPA's Power Resilience Guide, among other topics.
