    A brown liquid is bubbling out of my garden; can you identify this substance?


    Answer:

    System failures (usually called 'malfunctions') will usually involve a discharge of wastewater of the surface of the ground.  This liquid will be very odorous and is usually black or gray in color and should appear over the area of the absorption bed.  Flies may be present.  In the winter, this is sometimes seen as a discolored slick of ice on the ground.  If you call the the health department, we can look at this to try and determine its source.
