The New York State Department of Health has contracted Syracuse University to scale a wastewater surveillance network for SARS-CoV-2 and other public health threats. Initial goals are to reach at least one wastewater treatment plant in every county, with continuation goals being to reach all wastewater treatment plants in the state with permitted discharge of at least 1 million gallons per day.
