Agenda This program is designed to provide an in-depth look at pandemic influenza and provide information and training on what each individual, community, and public or private organization can do to prepare. Participants will go through the Pandemic Influenza Ambassador Program developed in conjunction with the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois Faith-Based Emergency Preparedness Initiative. Presentation topics will include: • A brief history of pandemics including H5N1 “bird flu” and H1N1 “Swine Flu” • The definition of a pandemic and the differences between pandemic and seasonal flu • The past and potential future impact of a pandemic on business and the economy • The potential impact of a pandemic on the health system and community • The role of the individual, the government, healthcare, and private sectors • Planning and preparation steps for individuals at home and in the workplace • Pandemic Countermeasures: the role of hygiene and medical interventions • Planning resources • Why a flu pandemic should concern everyone • How flu germs spread - and how you can avoid getting or spreading them • Planning and preparation steps you can take You probably have a disaster plan for your water utility, but a pandemic is a different kind of disaster. Now is the time to do additional planning so you are ready if this kind of disaster should strike. Here are some scenarios to consider: • How will your utility operate if you are not there due to sickness or quarantine? • What about other key members of your staff? • What will you do if members of your family are extremely sick? What about staff member’s families? • What will you do if some staff members refuse to report to work even though they are not sick? • Are you able to operate some of your utility remotely? • What if it becomes difficult to receive chemical deliveries on time due to truck driver shortages? • What if a crucial piece of equipment needs immediate maintenance? Have you developed a list of electrical, mechanical, and other vendors that will respond to an emergency? What if that vendor has a large number of employees out due to sickness? These are examples of pandemic planning that you must do before this kind of disaster become a reality.

AGENDA Illinois EPA began its Source Water Assessment Program in 1997 in response to amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act. These amendments require States to assess all sources of public drinking water. Assessments consist of the delineation of a Source Water Protection Area for each source of drinking water, an inventory of potential sources of contamination within the area, a determination of the source’s susceptibility to contamination and a plan to make the assessments available to the public. Illinois was one of the first States to have an approved Source Water Assessment Program. As part of the Source Water Protection Program, Illinois EPA has developed a webbased interactive GIS mapserver. This site is based on ESRI’s ArcIMS software and will allow the user to access all the databases and coverages used in the Source Water Assessments, as well as additional information such as pumpage data, land use data, and aerial photos. The website is secure and requires the user to complete and submit a Confidentiality Agreement to gain access. Since its inception the SWAP mapserver has expanded to include data layers for Groundwater Ordinances, water quality information from the Illinois State Water Survey and more. This information is used by by Illinois EPA personnel to conduct site evaluations and assessments for several different programs including the Leaking Underground Storage Tank program, Contaminant Evaluation Group, Site Remediation Referal Group and the Permit Sections of both the Bureau of Land and Bureau of Water. Training will consist of “hands-on” instruction of how to perform well surveys, search for potential sources of contamination and an overview of data available on the site. SPEAKERS Wade Boring, Illinois EPA Wade has been an employee of Illinois EPA since 1985 and Manager of the Geographic Analysis Unit in the Groundwater Section of the Division of Public Water Supplies since 2000. Prior to Illinois EPA he spent 3 years working in the oilfields of Texas and offshore Louisiana.
