Product Description

Mitigate the Risks of Waterborne/Foodborne Illness Using a Multi-Barrier Approach

We tend to take the safety of our drinking sources for granted, not realizing that that our assessment of potability is suspect. We know that we are dependent on water to sustain life, but when was the last time we really stopped and thought about the imminent danger this problem poses? Groundwater sources of our potable supplies are under severe pressure by the demand for water in the food industry, and we will have to act NOW to avoid disastrous consequences.

Find out how to best counter the problem of source water protection and its influence on the food industry in this webinar presented by environmental microbiologist Michael Brodsky. Brodsky will address the limitations of how potability is currently defined. He will then examine the options for mitigating the risks of waterborne/foodborne illness through the protection of source water using a multi-barrier approach.  

After attending this webinar, you’ll know the best practices for the protection of source water and risk management from a biological perspective.
