    • Description:
      Welcome to A Drop of News- a forum for state and local waterborne disease surveillance activities, as well as informal updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about waterborne disease and outbreak surveillance initiatives.

      In this issue, you will find a description of the revised fecal accident response recommendations for swimming pools; an update about the MMWR Surveillance Summary for 2005-2006 data as well as a summary of the Environmental Health Specialists Network (EHS-Net) program that includes program contact information and an article from the very first state to join the program. We are very excited to bring you information about the National Outbreak and Reporting System (NORS), a web-based electronic reporting system derived from eFORS that will allow waterborne, foodborne and enteric person-to-person disease outbreaks to be captured within one system. NORS, which is being developed through a collaboration between the Council for State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), CDC and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is currently scheduled to launch this summer. Training and guidance will be made available in the coming months, and we will be looking for feedback from you during and after the transition period.
