DHS has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin on the threat of violence from "ideologically-motivated extremists." The bulletin observes such individuals have a variety of motives, including “perceived grievances fueled by false narratives” and that they “could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence.” It also notes critical infrastructure received more threats of violence in 2020 and that extremists “have plotted and on occasion carried out attacks against government facilities.”

Critical infrastructure sectors, including the water sector, remain visible targets for anti-government violence. AMWA urges its members to practice vigilance and use available resources to protect their personnel and infrastructure.
