COVID-19 Community Levels Map Update, Feb. 3, 2023: The CDC has listed all eight Connecticut Counties in the Medium/Yellow category.  The Connecticut Department of Public Health recommends that all residents consider wearing a mask in public indoor spaces. People who are at high risk for severe illness should consider additional measures to minimize their exposure to COVID-19 and respiratory illnesses. Visit the CDC COVID-19 Community Levels Map for updates.

Drinking Water Section WebEOC

WebEOC is a web-based emergency management information system used by the State of Connecticut to document routine and emergency events/incidents. WebEOC provides a real-time common operating picture and resource request management tool for emergency managers at the local and state levels during exercises, drills, local or regional emergencies, and/or statewide emergencies.

As a result of the three major storms in 2011-2013, a specific dedicated WebEOC screen was created solely for public water system use.  It is important that public water systems understand and be prepared to utilize this new method to report system status to the DPH during an emergency event through the state web-based Emergency Operations System.
