Unlike books that give a broad view of the public health issues, this book focuses on the question of how the link between drinking water and infectious disease can be demonstrated and proven. It gathers state-of-the-art information from an international team of experts to provide an overview of current best practices and direction for assessing the safety of drinking water and responding to adverse events. This user-friendly text is the only book to put forward clear guidance on the surveillance for and investigation of waterborne infectious disease at the local, national, and international levels.
