The Lubbock Infection Surveillance Study (LISS) monitored viral and bacterial infections in a semiarid rural American community surrounding a major new land treatment demonstration project. The viral investigation examined the association of new viral infections in residents and workers and their exposure to infectious viruses through slow rate (sprinkler) land application of wastewater. Viral infections were detected both through serologic assay of semiannual blood samples and through clinical virological analysis by tissue culture techniques of monthly routine fecal specimens. The paper presents the results of the clinical sampling for viral infections.
