Important Micro Organisms in Wastewater

Cholera

Life History of the Micro organism

-This is where images, short videos, and basic information about the bacteria go

Disease and Public Health Information

-This is where we put images of the disease and symptoms, how it affects humans, testing procedures, medicines, public health campaigns, etc.

Wastewater Connection

-This is where wastewater systems role in preventing this disease come in. This could include treatment designs and/or lab tests we run.

-This is also where we put information on the connection between the lack of wastewater systems and the proliferation of the disease (either current and/or historic).

Starting resources that we will use to populate the above categories

Assets We Want to Find:

Clear images of the micro organism

Short videos of how they move and feed

Images and/or short videos of how the microorganism (and the disease) affect humans

Historical (or current) assets of public health campaigns to prevent or treat the disease

How the disease travels through systems without wastewater treatment and how treatment plants eliminate the micro organisms
