Abstract

Identifies the vulnerable points in a typical distribution system by determining likely points of intrusion. Aso creates reasonable scenarios outlining the consequences of purposeful contamination to the drinking water system, including water quality and water supply, and to consumers. Develops recommendations to reduce the vulnerability of critical elements and sub-elements of the distribution system. Includes a CD-ROM. Research partner: USEPA. Published in 2005.
