The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will soon release an Interim Guidance for personnel working with sewage servicing Ebola related facilities and patients.  Yesterday, the CDC briefed national water associations on the Interim Guidance which is in final draft form, awaiting final approval before public release.  CDC explained the comprehensive content of the guidance including: safety procedures for sewage workers and Ebola survivability in sewage.  CDC did not indicate a release date for the guidance.  Based on previous CDC final review processes, NRWA speculates the document could be released within a week.
