This report summarizes data on recreational water-associated outbreaks electronically reported by October 30, 2014 to CDC's WBDOSS (http:// www.cdc.gov/healthywater/surveillance/) for 2011 and 2012 via NORS.
For example, MAHC recommends additional water treatment (e.g., ultraviolet light or ozone) to inactivate Cryptosporidium oocysts at venues where WBDOSS data indicate there is increased risk for transmission.

This report summarizes data on recreational water--associated disease outbreaks electronically reported to CDC's WBDOSS via NORS [[dagger]] by October 3, 2012, in which the earliest illness onset date occurred during 2009-2010.
Thus, the MAHC represents an opportunity to prevent and control outbreaks through recommendations such as additional water treatment (e.g., ultraviolet light or ozone) to inactivate extremely chlorine-tolerant Cryptosporidium oocysts at venues where WBDOSS data indicate there is increased risk for transmission.
Outbreaks associated with freshwater HABs previously were reported infrequently; only three were reported to WBDOSS for 1978-2008.
