(CNN) -- A bulletin the Department of Homeland Security sent to local law enforcement officials this week warns of possible threats to private utility facilities in the United States.

Officials said, however, that there is no intelligence suggesting a specific threat.

The bulletin, obtained by CNN, says disgruntled current and former employees have in the recent past been able to use their insider knowledge to disrupt operations at water, gas and waste facilities.
