Water-supply problems arise in all phases of the disaster-management cycle. As with all other elements of emergency management, water supplies can be designed and maintained in ways that help to reduce the health impacts of disasters. It is useful to distinguish between large-scale, formal water-supply systems (e.g. urban water-supply systems) and small-scale, scattered supplies. The distinction is not so much between urban and rural areas, as one based on the level of technology and the institutional arrangements for management, maintenance, and protection. Whether the affected systems are rural or urban, sanitation surveys may be necessary to identify the main health hazards (World Health Organization, 1997a). Water sources are exposed to a variety of hazards that may damage or contaminate them, but they can be protected against disasters to some extent. This section is concerned mainly with ways in which improvements to existing water supplies can make them more resistant to damage.
