Vulnerability and Risk Assessments

IDCS has performed Vulnerability and Risk Assessments of the electrical and control systems for wastewater and water treatment facilities.  These have ranged from small pump stations to entire water reclamation districts.  In most cases, the assessments involved review of existing plants and their histories, on-site visits at facilities, and discussions of condition with operating staff. In order to ensure thorough and consistent analysis across the team, pre-prepared checklists and survey documents were developed and coordinated across all team members. The products of these reviews are then summarized in a report, distributed to all parties, and finalized.  These reports can then be used for development of operating procedures, remedial designs, incorporated into existing master plans, or full project plans.
