dc.description.abstract Since 2001 Upcountry Maui residents have been concerned that water additives may be linked to health problems in their community. A study using phone surveys was conducted to assess this issue. Most people suffered skin rashes, while others experienced eye irritations or respiratory problems. The surveys suggested that these symptoms might have been attributable to the water additives.
