Sewage — Victoria (Canada)

  • Derek Ellis

Abstract

Sanitary sewage is the mixture of human body wastes, water and chemicals which must be disposed of in some healthy, inoffensive way when people live together. Most cities and towns nowadays have chosen to dispose of these body wastes by water-flushing systems, although the hardware varies from sitting-toilet to squat-hole.
