Drinking water distribution networks are among the most resilient infrastructure systems to disasters, specifically hazards such as accidental pollution, floods, droughts, earthquakes, and pandemics. Water operators experiencing these kinds of hazards should focus on the establishment of more effective response systems. The paper presents the outputs and results of improving response time and effectiveness of the capacity developed by national, bilateral, and EU Civil Protection mechanisms. The methodology used for the hazard risk assessment procedures and the analysis of the Water Safety Plans (WSPs) lead to improved preparedness mechanisms. The results showed that water use efficiency is a key component in resiliency.
