Description Viable pathogens are generally present at every stage of wastewater treatment. Thus a potential airborne infectious pathway due to microbial aerosols exists, particularly at activated sludge treatment plants. In this study the concentration of sewage-borne indicator bacteria and viruses in effluent aerosols was determined and the exposure to such aerosols by treatment plant workers was estimated. Initial aerosol collection with fog-gage screen collectors yielded erratic results due especially...
