Abstract:

This section presents outbreaks in which preventing the spread of pathogens required an environmentally related solution. In addition, cases that allow students to investigate the microbes responsible for environmental damage are presented. Public recreational waters, such as pools and interactive fountains, can have design flaws or equipment failures that lead to contamination by fecal pathogens and outbreaks of diarrheal diseases. Some large buildings are cooled by air-conditioning systems that use cooling towers. If the water is contaminated with and some of the water leaks into the duct work, can be aerosolized throughout the facility, causing a large outbreak among susceptible individuals. A table illustrates microbes associated with environmentally related microbiological issues. A part of this section is devoted to reference material microbes that cause environmental and industrial problems. The section discusses various outbreaks, including gastrointestinal illness, dengue fever, acid pollution, , and . Each outbreak is detailed and the section concludes with questions and student activity.
