This study reports data from a two-year monitoring effort (1975-77) for several health-related constituents of drinking water in a northern Virginia system (Fairfax County Water Authority) which serves about 640,000 residents. This study addresses a broad range of interests with respect to viruses in detail and depth, with respect to a single, urbanizing reservoir and water service area. Since this project involved not only environmental studies but also a major basic testing of comparative virus sampling, concentrating and analytical schemes, its results will be of interest not only to water supply engineers but also to virologists and other scientists concerned with virus sampling, concentrating and analytical schemes, its results will be of interest not only to water supply engineers but also to virologists and other scientists concerned with virus measurement technology and assessments.
