About this book

In June 1993 the Drinking Water Inspectorate, with the assistance of the Water Services Association, organized a workshop on Cryptosporidium in water supplies. The workshop was attended by some sixty delegates with the objective of developing a realistic consensus on how to respond to reports of Cryptosporidium in water supplies and how to respond to subsequent outbreaks of drinking-water-related cryptosporidius. This publication includes the papers presented by the invited experts, a transcript of the ensuing discussion and reports of the workshop groups in question-and-answer format.
