: A couple of times a year our mainline backs up. During the most recent episode we discovered that we have a lot of debris, raw sewerage, puddles, etc. on the dirt floor of our raised foundation. In short -- it's a total mess! We've been given a very expensive estimate to clean this all up. Does this debris present a potential health hazard for my family. Is it essential that it be cleaned up - at any cost?

Valerie,
That's a good question. Working with plumbing everday, I've often wondered why I never seem to get sick. My wife say's I just don't believe in it. You know, the mind over matter thing. I do know that sewage material is used for farming. I know people even buy it to use in their yards. Some of the top soil sold in the Seattle area has reclaimed sewage mixed in. You could clean up the mess on your foundation dirt I suppose, but at any cost? Terry
