Water Quality Surveillance and Response System Exercise Development Toolbox

The SRS Exercise Development Toolbox helps utilities and response partners design, develop, conduct, and evaluate SRS-related discussions and operations-based exercises. These exercises help to develop, teach, refine, and improve SRS procedures.

The toolbox allows utilities to:

  • Learn about SRS training programs
  • Develop realistic exercise scenarios
  • Design SRS discussion-based and operations-based exercises
  • Create exercise documents
