||Waterborne disease outbreaks are a growing problem in the United States (1), and several recent outbreaks have been linked to the parasite Giardia lamblia (2-8). Previous outbreaks of waterborne giardiasis have often been associated with unfiltered or inadequately filtered surface water (2-8), and beavers have been implicated in certain instances as a likely reservoir of the parasite (3,4).
