Task Order 9 (ATC-102 Project), Earthquake-Resilient Lifelines: NEHRP Research, Development and Implementation Roadmap. The roadmap is intended to guide the investments made by NIST and other NEHRP agencies in generating national performance and restoration goals and accompanying guidelines, manuals, and standards for key lifeline systems and components. These efforts are accompanied by a coherent and well-coordinated plan to promote their voluntary adoption by communities and lifeline providers while also addressing the key socioeconomic and institutional issues, lifeline interdependencies, and other research, development, and implementation needs for both individual and collective lifeline systems. Community- and operator-level adoption is essential to reduce the risk of locally significant damage in the next major earthquake and to ensure that lifeline damage and service disruptions do not result in serious regional, national and even possibly international social and economic disruptions.
This task has been completed and produced the NIST GCR 14-917-33 report which may be ordered here in hard (printed) copy format.
