Homeland Security and Drinking Water: An Opportunity for Comprehensive Protection of a Vital Natural Resource Report
Safe drinking water is a vital resource for human health and is crucial to our everyday life. We all depend on clean, healthy water for nourishment, hygiene, and the basic comforts of our existence. Yet, our nation’s drinking water has proven vulnerable to contamination from intentional, natural, and accidental acts. These threats are even more apparent after the tragic events of September 11, 2001, which ushered in fundamental changes to our society and system of governance.
Homeland Security and Drinking Water: An Opportunity for Comprehensive Protection of a Vital Natural Resource seeks to increase stakeholders’ understanding and awareness of homeland security activities and policies that affect drinking water at all levels of government.
The report discusses the relationship between drinking water and homeland security, federal authorities and actions to promote homeland security and drinking water safety, and selected environmental authorities relevant to homeland security. Homeland Security and Drinking Water also presents states’ roles in homeland security and drinking water protection, and a case study on Florida’s response to homeland security and drinking water issues. Finally, the report identifies opportunities for constructive interaction.
