APHL Launches New Listserv

The Association of Public Health Laboratories announces the launch of a new listserv called the APHL-PEL for use by water sector laboratories and invites all public environmental health labs to subscribe.

Often water laboratories are the first line of defense in detecting drinking water contamination and preventing exposure to harmful levels of contaminants (the attached article explores the relationship between public utility laboratories and public health protection).

This new listserv offers a forum to exchange information relevant to water laboratory practice and policy. We encourage members to post technical questions, requests on policy issues, common management concerns, and related topics.  This fact sheet link EHL article Fall 2011  offers more information about the listserv.

 Note that this listerv remains open to the public in that anyone can subscribe and that it is not secure. Also note that any “reply” will go to everyone on the listserv.

Here’s how to sign-up.   To start receiving messages, send the following message:
