Pathogen Workshop Series

The Pathogen Workshop Series is designed to bring together nationally renowned water scientists and individuals who have an interest and stake in the future of water in the State of Michigan. The purpose of the workshop series is to learn about sources, pathways, and impacts of pathogens in water and to discuss potential solutions. Our goals are to characterize the issues regarding pathogens in Michigan, examine methods and solutions to address those issues, and to develop a framework for monitoring pathogens.
