When you dump waste tanks on the ground

The spot is in the center of the photo. Relax it is my hay field. I returned from a trip on Sept 4th and dumped about 35 gallons of both black and grey which also contained a bottle of aqua-chem. This photo was taken on Oct 31st.

I'd be more worried about black helicopters.

Just put on the lips and it prevents licking thus avoiding chapped lips.

Well,
So much for adverse environmental impact . If the gov finds out they'll make you bring the rest of the hay field up to the same standard

My dog does the same thing to my yard.

I call them crap circles. Maybe I should change his name to "ufo".

We live in the country and have a holding tank and drain field. When they pump our tank out they take it to some field south of town and dump it.

We figure this is our contribution to crop (or is that crap) rotation.

Bud, It's not "crap circles" they're "natural land mines"!

We just need to be mindful that seeing something that's green doesn't necessarily mean "healthy" for consumption. I wish to remind people of the spinach recall out of California where sewage was mixed with irrigation water and used on fields. The spinach contained e-coli INSIDE the leafs and no amount of washing could remove the e-coli. A similar but different contamination is happening when people use rain water run offs from roofs to water plants. It's okay for scrubs or lawns, but shouldn't be used for food plants.

Donna, thank you for the reminder. We are all stewards of nature.
