CLUSTERING OF INCIDENTS REPORTED HEALTH INCIDENTS BY LOCALITY (revised 042208)
CWMI has compiled this matrix that includes information on the reported health incidents that citizens associate with the application of sewage sludges to land. The matrix includes the locations, the number of persons and the symptoms reported. It has not been confirmed by scientific investigation that these persons became ill due to land application of sludges. A wide array of sources provided the information contained in this matrix including newspaper articles, government reports and other sources. We hope that the information may be useful to the full range of stakeholders concerned about the reported illnesses. CWMI invites those with additional information on these or other incidents to send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
