Health Risks of Waterborne Pathogens in Public Water Supply Wells from Minnesota

2024-07-23T13:00:00Z 2024-07-23T14:00:00Z Health Risks of Waterborne Pathogens in Public Water Supply Wells from Minnesota

Waterborne pathogens like Cryptosporidium, Salmonella, and norovirus can contaminate groundwater, and these pathogens pose a health risk to consumers when groundwater is used as a source of public drinking water. However, the extent of contamination and prevailing health risks in real-world public drinking water systems are not well-defined based on previous scientific studies. This session will highlight occurrence and health risks of multiple waterborne pathogens in source water for public supply wells across the state of Minnesota and be informative to other states in the Upper Great Lakes region.

Presenter information: Dr. Tucker Burch is a Research Agricultural Engineer with USDA’s Agricultural Research Service in Marshfield, Wisconsin. His research program is focused on health risks associated with waterborne pathogens. Dr. Burch has worked on studies related to management of livestock manure and municipal biosolids, risk assessment for drinking water from contaminated private wells in Wisconsin, and risk assessment for waterborne pathogens in public wells in Minnesota.

After registering, you will receive an email from "EGLE-Events" with a link for you to use to join the webinar. This webinar is approved for 0.1 CECs in the technical category for drinking water operators.

Individuals needing language assistance or accommodations for effective participation should contact Joel Roseberry, roseberryj@michigan.gov by July 9 to request language, mobility, visual, hearing, translation, and/or other assistance.
