  1. Risk assessment for Cryptosporidium parvum in reclaimed water.

    Article - En anglais

    The risk of cryptosporidiosis associated with San Francisco's proposed water reclamation program is conservatively estimated using an exponential dose-response model based on human infectivity data for Cryptosporidium parvum.

    The observed C. parvum concentrations in filtered secondary effluent present less than a 1-in-10,000 annual risk of contracting the water-borne disease through regular exposure at parks and golf courses irrigated with tertiary reclaimed water in San Francisco.
