Abstract
The present report examines the terrorist threat to Norwegian water supplies. The new threat environment in the post9/11 era is explored and is followed by a global survey of nearly 50 terrorist and sabotage attacks against water supplies during the past thirty years, collected from various chronologies and databases. The study concludes that water supplies are only of marginal interest to most terrorist organisations. The study has found no evidence of any successful terrorist attack using poisoning or polluting agents against large water reservoirs. There have been a small number of poison attacks against local water supplies, however, and a slightly higher number of bomb attacks against parts of water supply infrastructure. The study recommends that more attention should be given to vulnerabilities in the local distribution systems, primarily with regards to buildings housing typically high-risk terrorist targets
