What can we learn from the widespread outbreak of gastroenteritis in Havelock North in August 2016, with more than 5000 people falling ill, following the confirmation of the presence of E. coli in the water supply? Dr Brent Gilpin & Tony Cussins will present on some of the methodologies used to isolate the contaminant source, and evaluate the contaminant fate & transport mechanisims employed by ESR and Tonkin + Taylor following the outbreak.

They will also discuss some of the key recommendations from Havelock North Inquiry Stage 2, including implications for reform of the drinking water supply industry.
