ABSTRACT

Early Warning Systems for Hazardous Biological Agents in Potable Water   [open pdf - 36KB]

In this paper, we present characteristics of early warning systems (EWSs) and other pre-exposure management approaches that may increase the chances of preventing human exposure, if biological weapons are used in drinking water systems. We also address the interpretation of, response to, and communication of information derived from EWSs. This report reflects the deliberations of a breakout group from this conference that addressed system characteristics and interpretation, response, and communication issues.
