Waterborne Outbreaks in Rural Areas in the US Most of the waterborne disease outbreaks worldwide and in North America are associated with rural drinking water systems. According to Craun et al. , in the United States during the 12 years period of 1991–2002, 207 waterborne disease outbreaks and 433,947 illnesses were reported; 42% of these outbreaks occurred in non-community water systems, 22% occurred in individual systems such as private wells, and only 36% occurred in community systems. In most cases the drinking water supply in rural areas is provided by groundwater wells that in some cases are shallow. Between 1981 and 1998, 50% (210 of 417) of the reported waterborne disease outbreaks were linked to contaminated groundwater [2,3]. 696 outbreaks have been reported in the US between 1971 and 2000, of which 59% were linked to groundwater .
In recreational waters, fecal contamination from bathers has been an important source of exposure. 2. 3. Table 1. Table 2. 4. 5. Figure 1.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-007880-15 Liquid manure leaking into drinking water pipes: Gálvez. In 2014, the Spanish Government withdrew aid from cogeneration plants.
As a result, virtually all the liquid manure treatment plants in the country had to close, including the two plants in Castilla-La Mancha (Polán and Consuegra). This left the region with no adequate solution for processing liquid manure and, despite protests from cattle farmers, environmentalists, opponents and inhabitants of the possible consequences, the national and regional governments have to date only provided aid for the transport of liquid manure (without it necessarily being treated) to dumping areas or farms.
However, despite the regional government’s lack of transparency in this respect, it seems that there have already been instances of liquid manure leaking into drinking water pipes, as can be inferred from the events of 27 February 2015 in Gálvez (Toledo) [ This poses a huge risk for people’s health. 1.

A field study was carried out in the 2011/2012 cropping seasons at the Teaching and Research, Farms of the Delta State University, Asaba Campus, Asaba, a typical rainforest zone in Nigeria.
The aim was to evaluate the responses of ginger to three sources of organic manures namely; cow-dung manure, poultry manure and pig manure at the rate of 20 t/ha. The experiment was a randomized complete block design with three replicates. Growth and yield parameters of ginger were taken at the 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14 weeks after planting (WAP), while fresh weight was taken at 16th week after planting (WAP).
The growth parameters observed were plant height, number of leaves, leaf area and number of tillers. Int. J. Environ. Res.

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 19/06/13 Making and Using Compost for Organic Farming. Emily Marriott, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Ed Zaborski, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Introduction Composting transforms raw organic residues into humus-like material through the activity of soil microorganisms.
Mature compost stores well and is biologically stable, free of unpleasant odors, and easier to handle and less bulky than raw organic wastes. In agronomic and horticultural operations, compost can be used as a soil amendment, seed starter, mulch, container mix ingredient, or natural fertilizer, depending on its characteristics. Compost provides many benefits as a soil amendment and a source of organic matter by improving soil biological, chemical, and physical characteristics: Increases microbial activity Enhances plant disease suppression Increases soil fertility Increases cation exchange capacity Improves soil structure in clayey soils Improves water retention in sandy soils Reduces bioavailability of heavy metals.

Abstract Composting is becoming widely accepted as a best management practice for equine facilities. Stable waste is a readily compostable feedstock which generates heat and transforms into a finished compost product in as little as 2 weeks using in-vessel technologies. Composting the stable waste is financially beneficial, turning a liability into an asset, negating disposal fees, offering a decrease in bedding expenses and creating a saleable product. EPA 15/11/13 New England Institutions Honored for Food Waste Recycling Efforts on America Recycles Day. Release Date: 11/15/2013Contact Information: David Deegan, (617) 918-1017 (Boston, Mass. – Nov. 15, 2013) - In honor of America Recycles Day, two colleges in Massachusetts and a senior living facility in Connecticut were honored this week by EPA for their success in keeping extra food out of landfills and getting it to people who are hungry.
In addition, regional achievement awards were given to 12 other organizations in three New England states. EPA’s Food Recovery Challenge invites organizations nationwide to reduce the amount of food they buy and throw out and to divert surplus food to feed people, thus reducing their environmental footprint. In New England, more than 50 stores, school, hotels, restaurants, sporting venues and other businesses participate in the challenge. UMass Amherst has used several innovative solutions for reducing food waste. Regional achievement awards were given to 12 other organizations in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Vermont.

Aquesta onzena edició de la jornada ha estat dedicada a la economia circular i les seves perspectives de futur des d'una dimensió climàtica i econòmica. L’objectiu és prevenir al màxim els residus, i que els que encara es generin puguin ser transformats en matèria primera. D’aquesta manera, se’n maximitza la sostenibilitat i se n’evita la sobregeneració i la disposició en abocadors i incineradores, i s’afavoreix la reutilització, el reciclatge i el compostatge. En definitiva, cal donar el pas de considerar els residus com recursos, que en un territori com Catalunya, amb dependència externa de matèries primeres, poden rebaixar aquesta dependència. L'ACR+ és una xarxa internacional de ciutats i regions que comparteixen l'objectiu de promoure el consum responsable de recursos i la gestió sostenible de residus a través de la prevenció en l'origen, reutilització i reciclatge, amb seu a Brussel·les.
ECOWATCH 13/08/13 The Global Progress of Composting Food Waste. Yale Environment 360 By Dave Levitan As municipal food composting programs spread across North America and Europe, no city faces a more daunting task than New York. Its Department of Sanitation collects more than 10,000 tons of trash every day, and another 1,700 tons of recyclable materials. A large portion of that waste, though, may soon have a future other than the landfill: Food scraps and other “organics” have long been just a part of New York’s trash pile, but a pilot program in the city is aimed at rolling out collection of that material and composting it, a far more environmentally friendly method. “It’s the next new thing in terms of municipal waste handling in the 21st century,” says Eric Goldstein, a senior attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in New York.

EMA 17/02/10 Guideline on determining the fate of veterinary medicinal products in manure. Control of enteric pathogens in ready-to-eat vegetable crops in organic and ‘low input’ production systems: a HACCP-based approach - Leifert - 2008 - Journal of Applied Microbiology. Summary Risks from pathogens such as Salmonella, Yersinia, Campylobacter and Escherichia coli O157 have been identified as a particular concern for organic and ‘low input’ food production systems that rely on livestock manure as a nutrient source.
Current data do not allow any solid conclusions to be drawn about the level of this risk, relative to conventional production systems. This review describes six Risk Reduction Points (RRPs) where risks from enteric pathogens can be reduced in ready-to-eat vegetables. Changes can be made to animal husbandry practices (RRP1) to reduce inoculum levels in manure. Outdoor livestock management (RRP2) can be optimized to eliminate the risk of faecal material entering irrigation water. Introduction Organic farming standards prohibit the use of chemosynthetic fertilizers and pesticides, but recommend regular organic matter-based fertility inputs into soils.
