Abstract : The study develops methodology for creation of a plan for operation of a metropolitan water system subsequent to nuclear attack or natural disaster. Automatic digital computer water system simulation is used to determine the ultimate overall effect of damage to specific components. Vulnerability analyses are made as a mathematical model of the water system reacts automatically to hypothetical attack data supplied by the National Civil Defense Computer Center. Problems of unmanned water purification plant operation are noted. The need for and availability of electric power is cons dered. (Author)
