Much time and trouble is spent taking precautions to avoid water-born
giardiasis by recreational campers/hikers. My experience is in the Sierra
Nevada Mountains in California, where water is supposed to be filtered or
boiled for five minutes before drinking. Is there any information
available on the actual incidence or prevalence of giardia in thia area?
