refereed paper public health water JULY 2012 83 The Authors Dr Vikas Shah (email: vikas. firstname.lastname@example.org) has had a 10-year career in water and wastewater quality. His PhD was in identifying sources of faecal contamination in environmental waters. He is currently working as an engineer in the Wastewater Treatment Planning group, Hunter Water Corporation. He holds engineering and science qualifications, and has had research and consulting experience. Bruce Cole (Science & Water Quality Officer), Jordi Bates (Team Leader, Wastewater Network Planning) and Emma Berry (Manager, Water Resources) are all with Hunter Water Corporation. Peter Dennis is an ex-General Manager (System Strategy and Sustainability division) of Hunter Water Corporation.
