||A study was initiated to determine the occurrence and concentration of viruses in high quality wastewater treatment plant effluents from two treatment plants in California. Disinfected secondary effluent was compared to disinfected and filtered secondary effluents. Biweekly quantitative data from the two wastewater treatment plants were obtained over a 16-17 month period. Four cell systems were used for virus assays. Studies were conducted to determine the viral etiology of waterborne outbreaks of acute infectious nonbacterial gastroenteritis. During the period of this report five outbreaks of acute gastroenteritis were suspected to be of waterborne origin. Evidence of viral etiology was obtained in three of the five outbreaks. Cell cultures from chimpanzees, marmosets and monkeys were used in attempts to culture the agents producing gastroenteritis in humans. In no case was a virus isolated nor growth detected.
