    materials that will enable effective action and a better
    understanding of the health and safety issues relating to water
    borne contaminants.

    To improve the understanding of the communication needed for
    effective action.

    Ownership, input, understanding and implementation of changes to
    an existing Disaster Plan.

The day will include a "Virtual Flood Simulation".
