Antibiotic-resistant fecal bacteria were used to monitor the degree of movement and subsequent ground water contamination by septictank effluent discharged into a drainfield under saturated conditions. Two pits of different depths were constructed to simulate drainfield beds, and ground water samples were removed during 32-day sampling intervals from sampling wells installed at set distances from each inoculation pit. The bacteria added to the deep pit were released into a B2t horizon which… Expand
