“Assessing the potential risk for human exposure to known pathogens — a critical step in rulemaking — is only the most obvious reason. Here are some other good reasons for performing a microbial risk assessment:
- Watershed protection – to determine critical points for control;
- Treatment process evaluation – to specify techniques for reduction, removal, or inactivation of pathogens;
- Research – to identify and prioritize needs;
- Managerial – to help predict the consequence(s) of various management options available to risk managers.”
