The objective of the present study was to provide additional information regarding whether sensitive populations (infants and transients) may be adversely affected by sudden exposure to drinking water containing high levels of sulfate. Specifically, the authors designed a field invesigation to recruit 880 infants exposed to naturally occurring high levels of sulfate in the drinking water provided by public water systems and an experimental trial of exposure in adults. The authors conducted a pilot study of the planned recruitment methods and study instruments in four counties in South Dakota with high levels of sulfate in the drinking water provided by the public water systems. The authors developed a self-administered questionnaire (SAQ) to examine tap water use. The SAQ asked questions about the source of the women's home tap water, what mothers of infants < = 3 months old were currently feeding their babies, and how pregnant women planned to feed their infants.
