Abstract
The access to safe drinking water is a basic and critical component of our society. If the drinking water supply system is exposed to disturbances, it is of great importance that water suppliers are able to maintain continuity within the water distribution system. In emergency situations this has to be done using alternative methods, e.g. distribution by tanks.

This report analyses if the emergency planning of Swedish drinking water suppliers can be improved by the use of Business Continuity Management (BCM), and if the British standard for BCM BS 25999 is appropriate for the given purpose.

The conclusion is that BS 25999 is suitable for Swedish drinking water distributors, although it has to be translated before implementation... (More)
