There's a farm not far from us and if the wind is in the right direction we can smell his muck spreading,not very strong though ,but it's enough.

Back in 1863 Birmingham corporation suggested carrying sewage in open canals out of the city, and only mentioned closed pipes as a second option. imagine what that would have been like

A very interesting clip Mike.
The idea that sewage had "Consumers" is something I had never heard of before.

i find this idea of carrying raw sewage via the canals rather interesting. Not too many years ago the idea was put forward to move large quantities of fresh water down country via the canal network. This didn't happen either. Someone must have read about Weils disease or Leptospirosis. commonly thought to be caused or carried in Rats Urine.

I don't think the idea of moving water by canals has entirely disappeared. Any diseases in the water would be removed by treatment. After all much water used in some areas of the country is now abstracted frommrivers, which also might contain these pathogens. I seem to remember reading somewhere that by the time water from (I think) the Thames reaches the sea it has already been consumed several times during its journey. Not sure where I saw it though.
