Interactions of pathogens and irritant chemicals in land-applied sewage sludges (biosolids)
Affected residents lived within approximately 1 km of land application sites and generally complained of
irritation (e.g., skin rashes and burning of the eyes, throat, and lungs) after exposure to winds blowing from
treated fields. A prevalence of Staphylococcus aureus infections of the skin and respiratory tract was found.
Approximately 1 in 4 of 54 individuals were infected, including 2 mortalities (septicaemia, pneumonia). This
result was consistent with the prevalence of S. aureus infections accompanying diaper rashes in which the
organism, which is commonly found in the lower human colon, tends to invade irritated or inflamed tissue.
