WBFO reported on UB's wastewater surveillance efforts and quotes Ian Bradley, assistant professor of environmental engineering.
Since late in 2020, researchers have been studying local COVID rates by testing sewer wastewater for levels of the virus, the story reports.
"We're working with sewage treatment plants and we're expanding wastewater surveillance to other counties as part of a state initiative," said Bradley. "So we're working with the state and also the federal government, because the CDC has been expanding wastewater surveillance. The idea is using this not just for SARS-COVID-2, but using it for flu, for norovirus and for being able to track other diseases before we find them in the community."
