Review of Projects Ident.ifi edt in the Action Plan time of travel, dilution, and the characteristics of the particular agent all of which can be modeled. The Ohio River Monitoring and Notification Network is an example of an existing system designed to detect sewage and chemical spills in the river and provide rapid warnings to downstream water systems. EPA may wish to examine examples of these types of networks to assess their capabilities and applicability with regard to terrorism incidents. With regard to hazardous materials used in wastewater plants (4. b), the wastewater industry could benefit from the knowledge and experience of other industries (e.g., the paper and chemical industries) that are facing similar security concerns. The remaining projects were not reviewed since more detailed wastewater security discussions and further project development is ongoing at EPA. Additional Projects Management and disposal of contaminated waste and sludges (including materials generated in the course of a cleanup or response action) is an area where additional research and technical support projects may be needed. There is considerable experience with managing wastes from hazardous waste sites that may provide sufficient background. As a first order of business, existing procedures should be assembled and examined for adequacy in the context of a municipal waste contamination incident. The adequacy of plant worker protection to prevent harm during potential water security attacks should also be considered. However, since sewage is routinely laden with pathogens and chemicals, current practices may be sufficiently protective. 43
