As part of these projects, OtterTail has had ongoing contact and coordination with various County Health Departments, the Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC) over the last several seasons. While conducting complete mosquito management programs we have attended numerous meetings to help ensure that the most effective mosquito surveillance and control programs possible are being used to help minimize the threat of West Nile Virus (WNV) in the region.

Part of our coordination efforts have included the processing of adult mosquito collections from various projects and submitting them to CDPHE for arboviral testing and for those results to be included in the local, county and statewide WNV surveillance systems. We often engage in weekly discussions and meetings with individual project members and agencies during the mosquito season regarding sample submittals, area WNV infection rates, mosquito population trends and other mosquito surveillance and control related issues.

OtterTail’s past multi-agency coordination efforts ensure that your organization will continue to work together with local and regional agencies to reach the common mosquito control goals of your organization and the region.
