18Minnesota National Guard’s Critical Infrastructure Assessment Program The Minnesota National Guard’s Critical Infrastructure Program consists of two separate organizations: a Federal Team called the Critical Infrastructure Assessment Team and a State Team called the Full Spectrum Integrated Vulnerability Assessment (FSIVA) Team.The Federal Team is funded by the DHS to conduct site assistance visits (SAV) and to assist law enforcement officials in developing a buffer zone protection plan (BZPP) of critical infrastructure throughout the Nation. The SAV methodology is designed to facilitate vulnerability identification and mitigation discussions between government and industry in the field. The SAV is an information gathering visit which is non-regulatory. The visit is not an inspection and there is no pass-fail grade. A report will not be sent to other agencies detailing findings from the visit. No recommendations are provided during an SAV, only options for consideration. Options for consideration are provided to facilities to take the specific information and work it into their own risk management framework to determine whether further action is merited. To begin the SAV process within Minnesota, a request with justification for the SAV must be made via the DHS Protective Security Advisor, Glenn Sanders at (612) or The BZPP Program is a Federal Grant program that provides funding for local jurisdictions in which critical infrastructure and key resources are located. This program is administered within Minnesota by HSEM.The FSIVA Team conducts vulnerability assessments of both private and public organizations for the state of Minnesota, with an emphasis on critical infrastructure. These assessments consist of an in-brief, a walk-through with interviews of specified organizational members, a threat analysis, the preparation of a written document with a final presentation, and then an out-brief. The out-brief, an interactive session that utilizes graphic aids, is presented to organizational leadership. It outlines observations made of the organization’s physical security, disaster preparedness and emergency response plans and provides courses of action to strengthen and enhance these areas.Using the vulnerability assessment, an operations plan (OPLAN) is created specifically for that organization to be used in the event that the Minnesota National Guard is activated to assist in securing it.All proprietary information collected through the course of the assessment, to include facts and findings discovered as a result of the assessment, are kept confidential and secure and are exempt from mandatory release through the Freedom of Information Act. These assessments are conducted free of charge and are arranged only with the permission of the organization.TrainingThe FSIVA Team also offers free training to organizations on Terrorism Awareness, Vehicle Inspection, and Surveillance Detection

54TACTICAL WATER PURIFICATION SYSTEM (TWPS) DESCRIPTION AND SPECIFICATIONSThe Tactical Water Purification System (TWPS) uses state-of-the-art reverse osmosis technology to produce 1,500 gpm of potable water from any source, including salt water and nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) contaminated water.The TWPS includes a pretreatment system, chemical injection, high-pressure pump, reverse osmosis elements, control panel, valves, piping, cold weather protection, wastewater collection, five 3,000 gal onion tanks, and ocean intake system. It also includes distribution equipment to fill canteens or 5 gal water cans. Using 5 gal of water per day per person a community of 7,200 could be supported using one system.The Army’s configuration is mounted on a Load Handling System (LHS) compatible flat rack.The system is set up by three people and operated by one. Either TWPS platform can be efficiently transported by a truck, train, marine vessel, or fixed-wing aircraft.
55The Lightweight Water Purifier System (LWPS) The Lightweight Water Purifier (LWP) System is intended to improve the responsiveness of water support to early response entry and is highly mobile . It provides quality water to small units and detachments where distribution of bulk water is not feasible. The LWP provides water support without committing larger water production assets from the logistics support structure. The system tailors water production flow rates to the demands of independent remote responders.Notable features of the unit include: Designed to be man-portable and modular Can be set up and operated by a single soldier in 45 min or lessTransportable in HMMWV and med tactical helicopter. Can be air-dropped Treats any water source incl. seawater, brackish, turbid, NBC-contaminated Uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Ultrafiltration (UF) technology 5 modules: UF, high-pressure pump, control module, RO element, chemical injection/cleaning Lightweight Water Purifier Field Setup Automated, backwash cycles every 15 min, 30 seconds each UF cartridge Treats raw water to 60,000 milligrams per Liter (mg/L) Produces 125 gph from freshwater and 75 GPH from saltwater 45,000 mg/L Uses titanium pressure vessels for RO membranes Uses chem. injection pumps for coagulant or sodium bisulfite/antiscalant/ hypochlorite Overall power requirements are 240 volts/60 Hz and 120 volts/60 Hz
