Description:
This subcommittee recognises the potential for serious disease and large-scale outbreaks due to waterborne cryptosporidiosis and the need for national guidelines to detect and prevent its occurrence. In making our recommendations we have taken into account the recent changes in the infectious disease regulations, Infectious Disease (Amendment) (No. 3) Regulations 2003, S.I. No. 707 of 2003, and the new water regulations, European Communities (Drinking Water) Regulations, 2000, S.I. 439 of 2000, which came into effect on 1st January 2004. The responsibility for the provision of drinking water including its wholesomeness and cleanliness lies with the local authority. When human illness is linked to a water supply, the medical officer is responsible for investigating the source of infection, preventing its spread, and removing the conditions favourable to infection. The following are the recommendations of the subcommittee:
