      Purpose: For CDC and health department to use as a discussion guide when consulting with healthcare facilities in situations where there is concern for transmission of waterborne pathogens.

Examples of infections might include surgical site, injection site, or bloodstream infections due to nontuberculous mycobacteria; Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections among NICU or burn patients; Legionnaires’ disease.
