The report deals with a prospective epidemiological morbidity and serology study, in which the quality of data could be optimally controlled on the possible association between enteric disease incidence and wastewater utilization in agricultural settlements in Israel. The study relates to wastewater contact workers and their nuclear families, i.e. their children and spouses, and to the general population exposed to the aerosols formed by sprinkler irrigation with treated wastewater. The report describes the association between enteric disease morbidity and wastewater utilization, mainly by aerosolized wastewater by sprinkler irrigations.
