  • The inland beaches -- in the Alamitos Bay and Marine Stadium areas near the mouth of the San Gabriel River -- may have been contaminated when about 2,500 gallons of sewage seeped through a manhole cover onto a residential street and then into a storm drain leading to the Los Cerritos channel, Rodriguez said.

  • pathogens
  • Pathogens are not a significant health issue if sewage sludge is properly treated and site-specific management practices are followed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some of these farms remained in use until the end of the 20th century, at which point it became apparent that as it was usually contaminated with infectious pathogens and sometimes with industrial waste, sewage was not always suitable for use as a fertiliser. (wikipedia.org)
  • municipal
  • They are generally used in municipal and industrial applications for pumping sewage and all types of industrial waste water. (wikipedia.org)

  • organic
  • The organic matter of sewage is measured by determining its biological oxygen demand (BOD) or the chemical oxygen demand (COD). (wikipedia.org)
  • Sewage and other sludge materials contain many nutrients that have been captured from a waste stream, as well as organic matter that would increase soil tilth. (mofga.org)
  • pumps
  • These used a network of pipes and pumps to transport sewage beyond the city boundaries to large rented grasslands, into which the sewage trickled down. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vertical type sewage pumps have also been used for many years. (wikipedia.org)
  • system
  • On-site sewage system Hutchins, Wells A. (March 1939). (wikipedia.org)
  • This became popular in the early 1960s, when a guide-rail system was developed to lift the submersible pump out of the pump station for repair, and ended the dirty and sometimes dangerous task of sending people into the sewage or wet pit. (wikipedia.org)
  • Surface
  • Even optimum situations like irrigating fruit trees with flow in surface ditches may involve some risk of pathogen transfer from the sewage to the edible fruit by birds, insects, and similar vectors. (wikipedia.org)
  • gravity
  • Because the sewage was gravity fed into the works, some steep inclines were present (as steep as 1 in 49 in places) and several sidings were taken up and re-laid in line with the building programme and whenever a section became redundant. (wikipedia.org)
  • pharmaceutical
  • Sewage also contains environmental persistent pharmaceutical pollutants. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, some people argue that the term is a form of "propaganda" (or at least a euphemism) with the aim to hide the fact that sewage sludge may also contain substances that could be harmful to the environment when the treated sludge is applied to land, for example environmental persistent pharmaceutical pollutants.
