Determines how microbial pathogens enter the distribution system, particularly when treatment appears to be providing adequate multiple-barrier protection, and estimates the extent of pathogen contamination by different sources of intrusion. Also evaluates the effectiveness of distribution system maintenance practices in protecting the distribution system from pathogen intrusion. In addition, provides recommendations for monitoring programs that detect distribution system contamination by pathogens. Research partner: USEPA. Published in 2001.
