The Potential of Wastewater Testing for Rapid Assessment of Opioid Abuse (Research Brief)
Publisher: Princeton, NJ: Mathematica Policy Research
Aug 02, 2016
- Rapid and objective measures of drug use can be obtained through municipal wastewater testing – a largely untapped data source that leverages existing infrastructure serving 81 percent of U.S. households.
- Advanced analytics and mapping of the data produced can identify hotspots of activity for targeting resources, and assess temporal trends for evaluating programs.
- Development of a coordinated regional or national wastewater monitoring system would empower local, state, and federal officials to begin predicting, rather than reacting to, public health epidemics.
