Abstract : The objective of the study was to develop and test an improved technical basis for the selection and analysis of repair and recovery methodologies which will assist in the reestablishment of the sanitary environment in the period after a nuclear attack or other major disaster. In accomplishing this objective, the Sanitary Environment Control Systems of Detroit, Michigan were utilized to test and evaluate the concepts and methods developed. The concept of vulnerability is expanded to include numerous factors in addition to the potential damage to physical system components, including utility administration, operational self-sufficiency, communications, planning for emergency operation, and level of personnel training. Guidelines for developing a comprehensive vulnerability rating procedure are presented. A procedure, entitled the 'Recovery Technique Evaluation,' has been developed to be utilized in defining and evaluating alternative postattack repair and recovery strategies. (Author)
