Wastewater monitoring results for the current week in Louisville-Jefferson County

Wastewater Monitoring Results

Since June 2020 Louisville’s Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) and Louisville Metro Public Health and Wellness (LMPHW) have partnered with researchers from the University of Louisville's Envirome Institute to learn how sewage may indicate community health risk. We have collected over 1,000 samples from sewers at 17 sites across Louisville looking for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Together with county level clinical data, our sewers are helping us get a better picture to understand infection rate changes in large population centers of Louisville
