Development of a process-based model to predict pathogen budgets for the Sydney drinking water catchment

Ferguson, Christobel M; Croke, Barry; Beatson, Peter J.; Ashbolt, Nicholas J; Deere, D A


In drinking water catchments, reduction of pathogen loads delivered to reservoirs is an important priority for the management of raw source water quality. To assist with the evaluation of management options, a process-based mathematical model (pathogen catchment budgets - PCB) is developed to predict Cryptosporidium, Giardia and E. coli loads generated within and exported from drinking water catchments. The model quantifies the key processes affecting the generation and transport of...[Show more]
