Our Mission

The mission of the Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (WARN) is to support and promote statewide emergency preparedness, disaster response, and mutual assistance matters for public and private water and wastewater utilities.

The WARN website does this by providing its members with emergency planning, contact, and recovery information, before, during, and after an emergency.
