A survey was made of bathing water that exceeded the water pollution limits allowed under the most liberal existing standards. If the study showed no significant increase in illness among bathers using such polluted water, then many of the existing standards might be considered unduly restrictive. The Ohio River in the vicinity of Cincinnati met the required conditions of such polluted water. A survey of illness incidence in the Kentucky communities of Dayton and Bellevue adjacent to a beach off the Ohio River might yield valuable information. Thus an epidemiological survey, during the summer of 1949 is reported.
