  • Characterizing the Quality of Effluent and Other Contributory Sources During Peak Wet Weather Events

    This study evaluates the impacts of blending practices at municipal wastewater treatment plants on effluent and receiving water quality, and estimates public health risks associated with recreation in surface waters receiving blended flows. Field samples were collected at four municipal wastewater treatment plants for in-plant processes and ...

  • Manure Pathogens: Manure Management, Regulations, and Water Quality Protection

    Produced under the leadership of Dwight D. Bowman, M.S., Ph.D., this groundbreaking publication was developed by leading researchers in the health and environmental sciences fundamental to manure management and water quality protection. This first comprehensive work on manure pathogens details what pathogens are present in manure; what risks they ...

  • Cryptosporidium and Cryptosporidiosis, Second Edition

    From the microscopic observation of infection to the widespread application of molecular techniques in taxonomy and epidemiology, to the genome sequencing of two major species and advances in biochemistry, phylogeny, and water treatment, new information on this fascinating genus continues to mount as we discover and utilize the latest scientific ...

  • Hazard characterization for pathogens in food and water. Guidelines (En)

    Series: Microbiological Risk Assessment SeriesHazard characterization, either as part of a microbiological risk assessment or as a stand-alone process, describes the human adverse health effects that may result from ingestion of pathogenic microorganisms. Ideally, it will include quantitative information in terms of a dose-response relation and ...

  • Guidelines for Drinking-Water Quality Second Edition

    This Addendum to the second edition of the Guidelines for drinking-water quality contains reviews of a number of pathogens that occur widely in water - Aeromonas and Legionella spp., Vibrio cholerae, enteric hepatitis viruses, and protozoan parasites (Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and Cyclospora spp.). These review documents supersede, and are more ...

  • Cryptosporidium

    Cryptosporidium, in its various forms, is a widely recognised cause of outbreaks of waterborne disease. Regulatory bodies worldwide are increasingly requiring the development of 'fit-for-purpose' detection methods for this protozoan parasite, but analysis is often problematic. Bringing together international academic and industry-based experts, ...
