EPA sponsored the national Recreational Waters Conference to bring together public health and environmental professionals from states, tribes, territories, the federal government, academic researchers, and other stakeholders to discuss the wide-ranging issues related to human health in waters used for recreation (e.g., swimming at beaches).
Approximately 250 federal, state, local government and other stakeholders attended the conference. The conference included a pre-conference session with presentations on sanitary surveys, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) laboratory techniques, and predictive modeling; 10 sessions covering a range of topics related to recreational waters; and a poster session.
