Designed to Offer Strong Value

For $499, PARRE provides substantial benefits to its users:
  • Saves the assessment team time by performing laborious calculations and organizing data in a user-friendly way
  • Helps the assessment team understand the results and develop intelligent, prioritized management plans to reduce risk and increase resilience
  • For the water-sector, provides strict compliance with the ANSI/ AWWA J-100 standard for risk and resilience assessment
  • Provides the owner/operator with US Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act flow down liability limitation from directed attacks

PARRE helps you stay compliant with Public Law 115-270: America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018. Under Section 2013, “Community Water System Risk and Resilience,” all utilities serving more than 3,300 people must conduct Risk and Resiliency Assessments and develop Emergency Response Plans. PARRE provides strict guidelines so your assessments comply with ANSI/AWWA J-100 standards.

Structured to Meet Your Needs

PARRE has many features:

  • Tracks progress at reducing risk and increasing resiliency over time against a fixed baseline
  • Quickly updates as investments are made or assets are modified to show the change in risk and risk-priorities
  • Accesses a complete suite of J100-required directed threats for assessment team evaluation, automatically calculating asset risk for six natural threats (hurricane, tornado, seismic, flood, ice storm, and wild fire) based on U.S. government recurrence databases
  • Substitutes alternate recognized approaches for determining natural threat magnitudes and return periods, if desired
  • Calculates threat-asset pair risk probability values based on monetary consequences, vulnerability probability, and threat likelihood probability
  • Guides the assessment team through the step-by-step logic of an assessment, assuring that significant information is not overlooked
  • Calculates both threat-asset pair level resilience and system-wide financial/operating resilience
  • Links to owner/operator preferred consequence models (e.g. blast analysis, contamination, and toxic gas release)
  • Determines vulnerability probability using path analysis, decision tree analysis, and/or fault tree analysis
  • Determines threat likelihood using expert elicitation, conditional probability, and/or proxy tool
  • Accommodates proximity and interdependency evaluations from other lifeline sector risk assessments
  • Stores the amassed data in a secure, owner-controlled environment so that it is readily available for modification, updates, “what-if drills,” and/or future assessment team use
