Outbreak Decisions and Findings
  • Water is source of outbreak – 20+% attack rate (household survey)
  • Most likely cause is cattle access to watershed
  • Criteria for ending the boil notice – 2 consecutive negative crypto findings from sources and distribution
  • Criteria for ongoing monitoring – 2 crypto samples per week from combined source water, at least 3 days apart
  • Criteria for resuming boil notice in future - 2 consecutive positive crypto findings
  • Improved watershed control over cattle access is prerequisite to continuation of filtration exception and sufficiency of UV light treatment
