The City of Ainsworth received a Lean on LARM Safety Grant for a cyber security update to the City's Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) for its water department. According to Lisa Schroedl, City of Ainsworth Administrator/Clerk/Treasurer, the grant was used to strengthen the security of the water system.
She said the grant was necessary to help with the cost "with the ever-increasing concerns over cyber attacks on public infrastructure such as water and wastewater systems."
The League Association of Risk Management (LARM) offers $500 safety grants to its members to assist them in purchasing items that will improve safety in their communities. For more information, go to www.larmpool.org.
