We have a sewage lagoons but don't grow fish in it, there are however a few wild turtles that call it home. There is also what is called humanure which is what you can probably guess. My main concern is not having any salt buildup nor toxins entering the soil and water table. There really is no away when it comes to waste, whether it be water waste or garbage.
Yes, I agree. I didnít realize some gray water could be different from others.
