    This is a great example of the fact that far less then 100% of raw, untreated, sewage will get to Springhill Rd from NE Leon County. Miles and miles of piping and connections....any excess of nitrogen is coming from poor sewage infrastructure, not septic tanks.

      Are you saying that a city maintained sewer system is worse than a non-maintained septic tank? When was the last time your septic tank was inspected? How about the septic tank in your neighbor's yard? People poop it's a fact of life, the waste has to be dealt with, and the systems(including septic systems) have to be maintained. Breakdowns and even raw sewage spills will happen, but pointing fingers at other people(and other systems) does not alleviate the fact that there are septic tanks with problems.

        1. Two years ago, I had my septic tank pumped....and took pictures. 2. Suppose there is a problem with the system in my neighbor's yard. That waste water is from one residence. When sewering systems collect untreated, raw sewage, and pipe it to Springhill Rd for treatment, and there is a problem, like this article indicates, it is untreated sewage from THOUSANDS. The solution to pollution is diluted, not CONCENTRATING the wastes.

          Drain-field? These don't last forever, and can seriously degrade a septic system. There is more to maintenance than just pumping out the tank and taking pictures. The health of your septic tank(and everyone else's) has an effect on MY drinking water.

        Have you checked the sewer/effluent/lateral line from the plumbing stub out of your residence to the sewer trunk line? Especially older homes, these pipes are notoriously degraded and leaky!

          Have you? Is it leaking or is taking water into the system instead?

        No, this "sewer" did not lead to treatment plant. It led to millions of gallons of untreated sewage being leaked into the groundwater in NE Leon County
