Sanitarians Tire Of Gentle Manners
A fter eight y ears of using a soft
voice and gentle m anners, the
Oregon State S anitary A uthority,
N ovem ber 24, suddenly tired of
su b tle persuasions and served
statew ide notice against cities
and com panies m aintaining health
hazards th at it would use all legal
pow ers at its com m and to clean
up a situation w hich lias become
more and m ore intolerable.
The letter, h erew ith rep ro d u ­
ced, indicates th a t B eaverton’s
m ethod of sewage disposal had
placed it a t th e top of th e list
of offending com m unities.
The c u rre n t practice, in B ea­
verton, of digging a hole for a
septic tan k and then forgetting
w hat happens to th e sewage af­
terw ards, is pointed o u t as an
especially dangerous procedure
for the public health.
Evidence plainly show s th a t
the effluent from septic tan k s
does not sink Into the ground
but flows under th e top soil u n ­
til it reaches a depression or
accum ulates in stag n an t pools u n ­
til rain w ater forces it along to a
lower level, via su b terran ean
route.
Rain w ater run-off, in B eaver­
ton, has been allegedly provided
for w ith a storm sew er, em p ty ­
ing into B eaverdam creek. How ­
ever, «long the way, this storm
sewer also picks up o th er sewage
beyond rain, w ith the re su lt th a t
its discharge into the creek is
heavy w ith contam ination.
Since
B eaverdam eventually
joins a public w aterw ay, and in
•so doing pollutes such stream , a
violation of state law brings th e
offense to the atten tio n of th e
State S anitary A uthority.
U nder its pow ers, th e state
san itary a u th o rity can tak e ex­
ceedingly drastic steps to correct
stream |x>llution and o th er health
hazards. It m ight even o rd e r an
