Down on the bank beside the stream near here there is a fosa negra ... not much in use now as there are only a few inhabitants in the hamlet above ... but some black sludge still oozes from this fosa into the stream ... not a problem when the stream is full and running robustly ... but local farmers have diverted so much water into the acequias to irrigate their young avocado trees, that the stream has now stopped running ... I have no idea of the health/disease implications of this black sludge lying around on the edge of said stream ... ?should I be concerned or not?
I think the problem started about 3 years ago when there was a sudden storm and the torrent rushing down the stream tore away the bank which had supported/protected this fosa negra ... as I said earlier, it was not a problem as there was sufficient water/current in the stream to wash the effluence away ... but with increased irrigation for increasing number of avocado trees this is not the case now ...
It is against the law to allow grey water to enter the water table. In this case I would think this is worse than grey water. Certainly needs investigation.
methinks this fosa negra has probably been there 'since time immemorial' ... I also have to tread a bii warily cos I have a difficult neighbour who is using the land above said fosa as his huerta ... if I upset him, I am in deep trouble ... he is a somewhat violent man!
