Review of Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment Applied to Drinking Water
Quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) has emerged as a tool for deriving estimates of the risk of exposure to pathogenic organisms through specific routes of transmission, that would otherwise be difficult to determine epidemiologically. It is being increasingly applied worldwide as a means of assessing treatment pactice and to judge whether drinking water is of an acceptable quality. This report reviews the developments in QMRA and considers its potential for use in determining the robustness of water company risk assessments, as a tool to support decision making, to evaluate the effectiveness of different control strategies and to assess the impact on water quality from extreme events or changing conditions.
