What can SDWARN do for you?

In order to be eligible for federal grants and reimbursements before, during and after an emergency, all community water/wastewater systems are to:

  • Adopt the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
  • Support the development of interstate mutual aid programs.
  • Integrate response at the field, local and state levels of government.

The SDWARN program will help facilitate meeting these requirements.
