ABSTRACT

Lieberman, Jeffords, Seek Plans for Protection of Water, Other Vital Services   [open pdf - 48KB]

Governmental Affairs Committee Ranking Member Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., and Environment and Public Works Ranking Member James Jeffords, I-Vt., urged Administration officials Wednesday to improve the security of our water delivery and supply system and to develop emergency plans for a catastrophic event - to avoid the kind of service interruptions, or worse, that occurred following September's Hurricane Isabel and August's widespread power outage. The two Senators rebuked the Department for failing to assess many infrastructure vulnerabilities - including the centrally important water supply - much less devise protective measures and develop emergency response plans necessary to ensure vital services for hundreds of thousands or maybe millions of citizens following a catastrophic terrorist attack or cataclysmic natural disaster.
