As a consequence of the cholera spread in South and Central America, there is a greater public health concern about water supply protection. In the U.S., public water supplies are meeting current regulation requirements but may be faced with declining source water quality, inadequate treatment barriers, and infrastructure failures in distribution system integrity through deterioration or poor operation. Any or all of these issues may lead to pathogen penetration as evidenced by a variety of waterborne disease outbreak occurrences that have included some deaths.
