What We Do

EPA’s Homeland Security research program advances the Agency’s ability to carry out its homeland security responsibilities, including protecting and restoring drinking water supplies and infrastructure, and helping communities become more resilient from acts of terrorism that might involve chemical, biological, or radiological weapons, as well as from natural disasters.
