The manual describes the rationale for WSPs by answering the following questions:
. What are small community water supplies, and why are they important?
. What is a WSP?
. Why should WSPs be applied in small community water supplies?

. Task 1: Engage the community and assemble a WSP team.
. Task 2: Describe the community water supply.
. Task 3: Identify and assess hazards, hazardous events, risks and existing control measures.
. Task 4: Develop and implement an incremental improvement plan.
. Task 5: Monitor control measures and verify the effectiveness of the WSP.
