Pathogens Database Project

The new Pathogens 1 Database is a series of pathogen datasets, and provides the widest range of information on waterborne pathogens in one place. The purpose of the database is to provide a baseline dataset on more than 74 known factors that cause disease and death, that are transmitted in water. The baseline data can be compared with information obtained locally and used as a “yardstick” for other drinking water treatment facilities. This means that communities around the world can find out with greater certainty exactly how clean their water is. This knowledge can be used in turn to determine the most appropriate methods to treat water and to monitor human health impacts.

The Office of Groundwater and Drinking Water of the United States Environmental Protection Agencygave GEMS/Water their data and information on pathogenic organisms and organics in both water sources and treated water. The 74 identified parameters include Giardia, fecal coliforms, E. coli, protozoa, viruses which are believed to account for about 70% of all water-borne diseases and organics. The data were collected from 500 treatment plants in 290 geographic regions in the United States including island states and protectorates.
