Abstract
The report discussed to what degree detergents are removed from wastes passing through septic tanks and attendant percolation systems. Detectable concentrations of ABS in ground waters demonstrate that degradation is incomplete. Furthermore, frothing of water obtained from wells in sewage-polluted strata is not an uncommon occurrence. It is therefore important to study the interrelationships of synthetic detergents and septic-tank systems.
