Water Born Disease Outbreaks

Water-related Emergencies and Outbreaks Fast Facts.

The largest waterborne disease outbreak in United States history occurred in 1993 in Milwaukee, WI when over 400,000 people became ill with diarrhea when the parasite Cryptosporidium was found in the city's drinking water supply.

Legionnaire’s Disease got its name in 1976 from American Legion members who attended a convention in Philadelphia and were the first to suffer from an outbreak of this disease.

During the historic 2005 Hurricane season, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) ran out of names for major tropical storms, using letters of the Greek alphabet to name storms for the first time since storms began acquiring names in 1953.

A preparedness supply kit should include one gallon of drinking water per day per person.

Treating water with chlorine tablets, iodine tablets, or liquid bleach will not kill all parasites that can
contaminate water; boiling or appropriate filtration is required.
