The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) would like to thank all agencies, organizations, and individuals who either assisted directly in or supported the development of When Every Drop Counts: Protecting Public Health During Drought Conditions--A Guide for Public Health Professionals. In addition to CDC/NCEH, other primary agencies and organizations who coordinated the development of this guide are the American Water Works Association (AWWA), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Special thanks are offered to members who participated in the Public Health Effects of Drought Workshop (facilitated by Brett Boston and Vern Herr of Group Solutions, Inc.) held in Atlanta in September 2008. Their expertise, input, and insight greatly contributed to the development of this guide. Other individuals offered recommendations, consultation, and advice through conference calls, in-person meetings, and document reviews.
This guide reflects the commitment of many individuals who contributed their time, skills, and expertise to its development. Members of the CDC/NCEH project coordinating group include Rob Blake, Val Carlson, Katelyn Hardy, Martin Kalis, and CAPT Mark Miller.
Ultimately, however, this guide could not have been developed without the expertise and patience of our technical writer/editor, Rachel Wilson. Ms. Wilson worked closely with the CDC/NCEH project coordination group to develop a draft version of the guide, prepare it for external review, and incorporate suggestions and revisions offered by key partners and stakeholders.
