Wastewater testing may provide early warning of coronavirus (COVID-19)
Greater Western Water is participating in a collaborative research project across Australia and New Zealand that can help to understand the occurrence of viral fragments in wastewater systems.
Samples of wastewater are collected from treatment plants and in the sewer network, both in metropolitan and regional locations. These samples are analysed for fragments of the virus. The testing results can be used with other health data in coronavirus response efforts.
