PLOS 11/04/17 Microbial quality of agricultural water in Central Florida. Abstract The microbial quality of water that comes into the edible portion of produce is believed to directly relate to the safety of produce, and metrics describing indicator organisms are commonly used to ensure safety.
The US FDA Produce Safety Rule (PSR) sets very specific microbiological water quality metrics for agricultural water that contacts the harvestable portion of produce. Validation of these metrics for agricultural water is essential for produce safety.

PLOS 02/01/14 Enteric Pathogens in Stored Drinking Water and on Caregiver’s Hands in Tanzanian Households with and without Reported Cases of Child Diarrhea. Abstract Background Diarrhea is one of the leading causes of mortality in young children.
Diarrheal pathogens are transmitted via the fecal-oral route, and for children the majority of this transmission is thought to occur within the home. However, very few studies have documented enteric pathogens within households of low-income countries. PLoS One. 2013; 8(12): e84447.

FOOD SAFETY MAGAZINE - OCT/NOV 2015 - Back to the Future: Controlling Microbial Contamination in Water. Food Safety Insider | October/November 2015 By Weber Scientific Although pathogen detection, total counts, hygiene monitoring, etc. have deservedly received much attention for food products and on food plant surfaces, fewer methods have addressed microbial contamination in water.
Since water is used all around the plant for multiple purposes, it is incumbent upon us to consider quick, easy-to-use methods that are readily available for assessing microbial contamination in fluids. PLOS 07/05/14 Contamination of Groundwater Systems in the US and Canada by Enteric Pathogens, 1990–2013: A Review and Pooled-Analysis. Abstract Background Up to 150 million North Americans currently use a groundwater system as their principal drinking water source.
These systems are a potential source of exposure to enteric pathogens, contributing to the burden of waterborne disease. Waterborne disease outbreaks have been associated with US and Canadian groundwater systems over the past two decades. However, to date, this literature has not been reviewed in a comprehensive manner. Methods and Principal Findings A combined review and pooled-analysis approach was used to investigate groundwater contamination in Canada and the US from 1990 to 2013; fifty-five studies met eligibility criteria. Conclusions This review illustrates how groundwater study design and location are critical for subsequent data interpretation and use.

Open Access Highlights Potential impacts of the International Ballast Water Management Convention are discussed.
Chemical ballast water treatment effectively reduces the risk of aquatic species invasions. Oxidative water treatment forms disinfection by-products that may harm humans and marine biota. The established risk assessment disregards multiple exposures and long-term sub-lethal effects. Holistic assessment of ballast water management needs to cover many additional factors. Abstract.
