In 2020, the City of Anacortes conducted a risk assessment on the major components of the water delivery system. The delivery system is divided into four broad categories: water treatment and purification, large wholesale distribution, water storage, and small commercial and residential distribution.
A myriad of natural and malevolent acts can impact or cripple each component of the system in different ways. The risk assessment included the assessment of natural hazards identified in the Skagit County 2020 Natural Hazard Mitigation plan, and the evaluation of risks from malevolent acts on facilities such as active shooter, arson fire, and malware or ransomware attacks on the City’s information technology systems.
