Webinar: Looking Back and Moving Forward on the Intersection of Public Health and Wastewater Surveillance
Wastewater-based epidemiology continues to show community public health value as the country deals with more emerging COVID-19 variants. Especially as clinical testing appears to be waning at the individual level, wastewater surveillance remains a consistent predictor of disease prevalence in a given community — and a vital tool for those making public health decisions.
The public clean water community has made significant strides gathering critical surveillance data to help support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Wastewater Surveillance System (NWSS), but what lies ahead for this type of information? Could the clean water community be on the hook for collecting influent data for other concerning pathogens and viruses beyond COVID-19? Could this type of genetic analysis replace traditional Clean Water Act monitoring methodologies?
