Another hot day here in Newie, I went to the falls program this morning that was good, I am enjoying it.
Here are this weeks gross facts this week I am writing about sewers which I am splitting in two.
In Victorian London human sewage drained into the river Thames turning the drinking water brown
In Mexico City in 2000 heavy rain broke down the wall of sewage canal, thousands of homes were flooded with 1 metre high sewage
In 1848 a law was passed in the UK stating that all houses should have an ash pit, where poo and wee fell into a pile of ash ready for collection
London built a modern sewage system after the great stink of 1858 when a smell of poo hung over the city
Toilet paper was first used in China more than 1500 years ago
