Cryptosporidium Risk in Catchments Workshop

Nov 25, 2015 9:30am to 4:00pm

Presentations for this event are now available.
The workshop, which was held in Sydney on the 25th November, explored the current knowledge of Cryptosporidium risk in the Australian context.

Across Australia, catchments vary considerably in size and land use. In some catchments, Cryptosporidium presents a risk to water quality. The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines have set an individual filter turbidity target for catchments with an identified risk from Cryptosporidium.

The workshop explored the current knowledge of Cryptosporidium risk in the Australian context, including:

  • Cryptosporidiosis epidemiology in Australia
  • Understanding the risk from Cryptosporidium in drinking water catchments
  • Cryptosporidium in the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines
  • Models to assess the Cryptosporidium risk in catchments
  • Strategies to control the Cryptosporidium risk
  • Identifying knowledge gaps and research projects

This event was co-hosted by NSW Department of Health and WaterRA.

Presentations from this workshop are now available for downloading:

1. Cryptosporidiosis epidemiology in NSW Dr Jeremy McAnulty
2. Evolution of the Turbidity Fact Sheet in the ADWG and its link to the management of Cryptosporidium risk Mr David Sheehan
