For my research paper topic, I want to dive into the realm of the water and wastewater sector’s and some of the major man-made and natural threats that could provide devastation to several of the United States territories. Throughout the passage, I would like to discuss not only short-term consequences the United States must prepare for, but also long-term threats that will cause this sector to learn and reevaluate on how they can provide specific services to many of the other sectors in the homeland security enterprise. Whilst some of the documents I have found provide some plans of actions towards these, I want to summarize my thoughts in which plans I feel will be most beneficial for US infrastructure both short-term and long-term. Thanks!

This assignment is a research paper, not an opinion paper, so you need to use the class readings and other sources to support your thesis. Make sure you use APA style in-text parenthetical citations at the end of every sentence where you are quoting or paraphrasing another’s ideas (or any information) that is not your own thoughts and words, like this (Bergen, 2015, para. 14). I highly recommend you use the APUS writing guide based on the APA style which can be found in the university library or at this link: APUS Library Homeland Security Program Guide for good sources, as well as the APUS Research Primer and the APUS Library Research FAQs.
