Abstract
The document represents the proceedings of a workshop in drinking water microbiology sponsored in December 1981 by the USEPA Office of Drinking Water (ODW) in conjunction with the American Society for Microbiology. The purpose was to examine options on revising the current drinking water microbiology and turbidity standards, and make recommendations to ODW. Participants included representatives from local, State, Federal, and foreign government agencies, universities, and industry. Six panels were convened for the following areas of drinking water microbiology: (1) Agents of Waterborne Disease, (2) Measurement of microbial Water Quality, (3) Monitoring, (4) Methods, (5) Source, Treatment, and Distribution, and (6) Compliance and policy issues. Each panel reviewed and debated a draft issues paper prepared by the panel's chairman. The six issues papers in the document reflect the views, conclusions, and recommendations of each panel.
