The agricultural water Risk Prioritization Tool is an educational tool that was created before the 2024 publication of revised Subpart E. The concepts integrated into the tool are based entirely on Good Agricultural Practices and other science-based principles. The authors expect that use of the Risk Prioritization Tool can be a useful aid for understanding the agricultural water system on a farm, including the water source, distribution systems, and conditions that may allow fecal-oral pathogens to enter the water. However the output of the Risk Prioritization Tool IS NOT EQUIVALENT TO AND IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE for doing an agricultural water assessment as described in revised Subpart E.

The Risk Prioritization Tool for agricultural water is available in both Excel or and paper (manual calculations). In addition, training scenarios are available to help guide usage of the tool.

The Risk Prioritization Tool for agricultural water was made possible by Food Safety Outreach Program [grant no. 2020-70020-33023] from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture. PI Annalisa Hultberg, University of Minnesota and Co-PI Phil Tocco, Michigan State University.
