Disruptions in either quality or quantity in the water supply can create crippling effects for the operation of cities, military bases, hospitals, businesses, and residential areas. To prevent disruptions such as the one caused by the February 2021 Texas winter storm, the water industry must develop a more extensive “expeditionary” risk management mindset. Incorporating insights gathered from expeditionary risk management programs at the National Aeronautics & Space Administration and the U.S. Air Force can provide a path to address high-impact vulnerabilities in this critical industry.
“Applying the Expeditionary Mindset to the Water Industry” was originally published in The Military Engineer July-August 2021 issue.
