The Health Effects Research Laboratory and the Municipal Environmental Research Laboratory of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sponsored a National Symposium on Waterborne Transmission of Giardiasis in Cincinnati on September 18-20, 1978. The symposium brought together scientists, engineers, and federal, state, and local public health officials for the purpose of determining the state-of-knowledge regarding the etiologic agent and the disease as they relate to water supplies. Sessions on the organism, the disease, epidemiology, detection methodology, water treatment technology, and research needs were held. The proceedings consist of 19 invited manuscripts, 6 abstracts of contributed papers and transcripts of discussions following each presentation.
"EPA/600-9-79-001." "July 1979." Includes bibliographical references.
