Abstract:

An International Collaboratory for Sewage (IC Sewage) (http://cws.msu.edu/ICSewage.htm) has been established as a part of the International Water Association's Health- Related Water Microbiology Specialty Group. The overall mission of the IC Sewage is to advance our understanding of the impact of wastewater on water quality and health worldwide. As a part of this collaboration, the group is working on developing a tool box to be used for microbial source tracking (MST) to characterize, quantify and map human fecal pollution in waters across the globe.
