Prevention of Disease & Injury from Waterborne Pathogens during an Emergent Health Crisis

This two-day virtual session will center on how industries such as health care, water utilities, manufacturing, cultural institutions, hospitality, as well as health departments  and regulators can better respond to water-related challenges during a pandemic or major health crisis.

When healthcare, commercial, and industrial facilities experience low to no occupancy, this has the potential to significantly impact water quality, consumption of water, and operation of building water systems. This session will provide an opportunity for discussion on how we can work together to develop emergency plans and adapt water safety practices to prevent further public health hazards.
