Details

The aim of this planning guidance document is to provide a framework for a multi-agency response in the event of severe service disruptions resulting from major water and wastewater incidents. The guidance will be additional to, and support any existing national, regional and local generic command and control protocols. It does not replace any such documentation.

Major incident(s) will be of a size greater than the response capability of the water company concerned, even with assistance from other water companies in the form of mutual aid.
