    A Drop of News is a forum for highlighting state and local waterborne disease surveillance activities, and giving informal updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about waterborne disease and outbreak surveillance initiatives.

    After being on hiatus for several months, A Drop of News returns with information about waterborne disease-related research, outbreak response and investigation, surveillance and more! As we welcome in the new year, we would also like to introduce the new Waterborne Disease Prevention Branch (page 2), which is looking forward to working with you and other CDC water groups on water, hygiene and sanitation activities in 2010.

    This issue includes an article from Arizona (page 3) about its responses to three Crypto outbreaks, as well as success stories from two EHSNet-Water participants (pages 6 and 7). See page 8 to read about the collaborative approach taken by South Carolina to save its Recreational Waters Program.
