Wastewater-based surveillance (WBS) of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) represents a promising complement to clinical testing as a means of assessing COVID-19 trends within a community. The objective of this project was to understand how WBS sampling designs impact the quantifiable SARS-CoV-2 genome in both centralized and decentralized wastewater collection and treatment systems. In addition to WRF funds, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation contributed funding to support this project. Published in 2022.
