#Hepatitis outbreak threatens #SanDiego’s water supply

Councilman David Alvarez on Thursday penned a letter to the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project requesting that the environmental research group start testing as many as a half-dozen area waterways for the deadly liver infection.

The letter goes on to ask researchers to develop an action plan to prevent the spread of hepatitis beyond any waterways that might test positive for the disease, which has killed 18 people and sickened nearly 500 others.

Mayor Kevin Faulconer did not respond to questions about the proposed water monitoring effort.

  1. NOTE THAT THEY Ran to an Enviro Grp and NOT the center for disease control .. It will be a political assessment.. not a real solution involving doctors.
