Description :
The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted several scientific questions related to water. The urgency to deliver the necessary answers and the complexity of the studies to obtain them require a concerted effort from all stakeholders. Central to the scientific questions is the quantification of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the etiologic agent of COVID-19) in order to develop a surveillance network for future outbreaks. In an effort to coordinate, the Canadian Water Network has created a Wastewater Research Coalition on COVID-19 to bring together the work of researchers and strengthen links with public health authorities. Four of CentrEau's members (Dorner, Frigon, Vanrolleghem, and Yargeau) are on the coalition's advisory committee. However, we believe that our action in Quebec could be more effective if we were better supported locally in pooling our projects, seeking funding, and sharing results. The project CentrEau-COVID was created because of this seed money and obtained $1,7M for further research.
