This document describes the set of scoring protocols used to relatively rank pathogens on the PCCL to produce a CCL. EPA derived this scoring process in part from recommendations of the National Research Council (NRC) and an expert workgroup established by the National Drinking Water Advisory Council, and two external workshops (June 2006 and March 2007). This document describes the rationale for using scoring protocols to rank pathogens based upon their occurrence, health effects, and waterborne disease outbreaks.
