Title: Contamination from private septic systems: 1989 and 1990 survey results
Author: Poel, Karen
Abstract: In 1989 and 1990 a septic system survey was conducted in four areas of Oxford County. Results show that approximately one quarter of the surveyed residences in Hickson, Embro, Thamesford, and Beachville areas do not dispose of their grey water through a septic system. Older systems showed a greater tendency to have improper grey water disposal methods. Many drinking water samples analyzed contained bacterial contamination.
