Wastewater surveillance data in the U.S.

Here are the major data sources for wastewater surveillance data in the United States. We’ve included government sources and research/academic dashboards.

The page is split into two tables: national sources and state/local sources. Click on a row to see detailed annotations on that source.

This resource will be updated once a month. The most recent update was November 20, 2022.
