On Feb. 17, the American Water Works Association will host a "New Approaches for Assessing Microbial Threats" Webcast, which will include recent study results on the occurrence and viability of microbial health threats in drinking water.

Attendees will learn to interpret results from scientific research on distribution system pathogens, how genotyping Cryptosporidium oocysts improves watershed management and provides insight into human health risks, and how to identify key factors which promote retention and subsequent biofilm development of E. coli O157:H7.

Presenters include:

  • Mark Borchardt, Ph.D., Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation;
  • Ben Klayman, Ph.D., Water Treatment Technology, Black & Veatch;
