Two Literature Reviews Related to Recreational Water Quality Risks

EPA conducted two literature reviews to help inform development of new or revised recreational water quality criteria by 2012. The first document, “Review of Published Studies to Characterize Relative Risks from Different Sources of Fecal Contamination in Recreational Waters,” describes the existing information available to characterize the relative risks of human illness from various sources of fecal contamination in recreational waters. The second document, “Review of Zoonotic Pathogens in Ambient Water,” provides a summary of information on waterborne zoonotic pathogens that come primarily from warm-blooded animals.

Both documents are available on EPA's Web site at:
