Details: Learn how to use EPA's Power Resilience Guide. The Power Resilience Guide provides water and wastewater utilities with information and strategies for strengthening relationships with their electric providers and increasing their resilience to power outages. This training will also demonstrate EPA's Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) Template. EPA collaborated with California water and electric utilities, the State Water Boards, and other stakeholders to develop the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) Template. Although the SOP was developed for PSPS events, most of the actions apply to any power outage that water utilities could experience. The SOP provides actions that water utilities can take to prepare for, respond to and recover from power grid outages and addresses the following topics: Generators and Backup Power, Fuel, Communication, Partnerships, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Staffing, Access and Safety.
