To reduce the spread of COVID-19 across Michigan, a COVID-19 Wastewater Surveillance Project was established by the Michigan Departments of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE), in partnership with 29 local health departments, 19 laboratories, and at least 135 partner organizations. The project goal is to more immediately detect SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, by examining and testing wastewater collected from sewers and wastewater treatment plants.
