In May of 2000, more than 2500 hundred people became ill with symptoms of E. coli infection, and 7 people died, in Walkerton, Ontario, Canada.

Although the water sample taken during this time proved the contamination of E. coli bacteria, the Public Utilities commission denied any danger. As such, the resulting illness and deaths could have been avoided.

What is last year of decade 1999 or 2000?

Given that there was no year 0, the first decade would have been from year 1 to year 10 (inclusive). Adding ten-year intervals would lead to the result that the last year of the decade was 2000 and not 1999. However, that is the view of a purist mathematician - something of a minority view.
