This report identifies security-related practices applicable for typical small, rural wastewater systems focusing on security practices consistent with the technical, managerial, and financial capacity of small systems. It identifies a series of security-related "Practice Areas" that can be implemented in the near term with modest expenditure of financial and/or staff resources. Additionally, the report outlines a strategy to help small utilities define and implement programs for ongoing, sustainable security enhancement. Published by WERF. 64 pages.
