Abstract

Episodes of diarrhoea and vomiting were monitored at schools in two areas affected by water restrictions during the drought of 1976 and compared with records from schools in an adjacent unaffected area. Evidence was obtained of a possible association between restrictions in water supply and gastro-intestinal disturbances. It is suggested that outbreaks of diarrhoea and vomiting be monitored in areas where the water supplies are restricted in any future drought.
