<br />in this area; that, last October 3rd the Village Sanitarian tested the three
<br />largest ponds in the area and there ~7as no indication that there ~7as sewage
<br />running into these pools; that, very recently, eight tests have been made on the
<br />water €,om private wells of Rolling Green residents, and that all eight have been
<br />free of the colcbform organisms and nitrate nitrogen which prove contamination;
<br />that, in adaition to this, three tests have been made this past year,(as the
<br />result of an ordinance adopted by Council which requires a "percolation" test on
<br />the ground to determine if the soil will, absorb 1iquid.i-and the satisfactory
<br />results of such tes,p--before a sept'ic tank is permitted to be installed); that
<br />all three tests have proven satisfactory, and there is no evidence to the effect
<br />that the soil will not support septic tanks and drain fields in this area.
