OUR SANITARY STATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 26 November 1898

OUR SANITARY STATE. ? A ? There is at present existing in 'Gundagai an erubescent evil that wants ? eradicating and calls for immediate steps to be taken by those in authority. We allude to the disgraceful condition in which a number of cesspits within the Munici pality are at present. Even in winter time these hotbeds of disease and death were very offensive to the sensitive olfac tory organs, but now, with the advent of the hot weather, the stench arising from them is doubily disagreeable and dis gusting. It is not at one pliice alone that this state of things exists, but in many. Very few of' the cesspits in town are cemented, and as a result the fcecal matter filters through the: ground and by the natural course of things finds its way into the wells on tbe flat. Tile Gundagai soil is principally permeable, and in one case where the pit is rathsr full the filth oozes through the surface, and at noon-time oiv a warm day the smell is enough to kill -at a hundred; yards.'.
