Information about U.S. Waterborne Disease Outbreaks (WBDOs) is voluntarily reported by state, territorial and local public health agencies to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CDC and EPA jointly maintain the WBDO database that summarizes the information collected through this WBDO Surveillance System. The WBDO database describes outbreak attributes including, among other things, the drinking water system deficiency, the etiologic agent, and the number of individuals who became ill. Underreporting of WBDOs is assumed but the magnitude of underreporting is unknown.
