Todds Query to Uzi about septic tanks and raising ducks


The duck raising activity seems a good fit. It may be that Peggy may wish to phase in such an addition to the pond at some later time.

What is your view on the use of the effluent (perhaps 500 liters a day) from a septic tank, provided to process the waste from the family, for use in crop irrigation or feed into the fish pond? Crops in many parts of the Developing World are raised on both raw sewage and processed wastewater as from sewage lagoons.
