They want people to repair their septic tanks when leaking effluent into the ground water? And PAY for it?


It'll be the death of rural living as we know it.

I always wondered why there is no equivalent in Irish of the Welsh 'ty bach' or Gaelic 'taigh beag'!

People cleaning up their own shit - what do the authorities think they are - dogs?

The argument is that they pay the same taxes as urban dwellers whose sanitation is paid for out of taxation. However, the size of the rural problem is almost overwhelming, and quite certainly the state couldn't afford it.

Perhaps the answer could lie in rural co-operative small scale schemes, and a bit of imagination and suitable tax breaks should take care of the problem over, say, a 20 year period.

Less than 30 years ago I remember standing on a bridge a little downstream from a middle- sized Irish town, and watching the plume of raw sewage spreading along the river from the outflow. I can't remember which town- somewhere between Rosslare and Skibbereen- because we immediately renamed it Feakle.
