||The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is an important partner in the BioWatch program and has a major role in sampling operations. We sought to answer the following questions: What are EPA's designated responsibilities in the BioWatch program. How well is EPA implementing its designated responsibilities in the BioWatch program. Background BioWatch is an early-warning system designed to detect the release of biological agents in the air through a comprehensive protocol of monitoring and laboratory analysis. BioWatch is a detect to treat network intended to detect biological agents within 36 hours of release, so that there is time for Federal, State, and local officials to determine emergency response, medical care, and consequence management needs.
