This week's NEWS

EPA won't regulate eleven pending CCL2 chemicals plus perchlorate and MTBE, and some are not happy about that. Extension of filtration waiver proposed for New York City. "Message mapping" could help with crisis communications. Desalination is on the front burner... everywhere? Maybe it's OK to be shallow... when it comes to radium? Rainwater is great for washing sister's hair... but can you really bottle it?

  • Report: Effective Risk and Crisis Communication During Water Security Emergencies (PDF file, 1.43 MB)
    Commentary: It seems that message mapping could serve water utilities well in any kind of emergency, not just one involving security concerns. What is it? "Message mapping is a process by which users can predict 95 percent of questions likely to be asked by the media and others following an incident, prepare clear and concise answers to the questions along with supporting information ahead of time, and practice effective message delivery before a crisis occurs."
