    Hello all,

    Just had a manhole unleash some nasties over the lawn, managed to remove the king richards from the lawn but all the unseeable 'juices' are still seeping into the soil.

    What can I use to disinfect the e coli and othe microbes without turning the grass into brown bald spots......

    Thanks in advance.

    Rob

    just leave it alone and try to keep any people, especially kids off it.

    It will be relatively safe after a few sunny days and after a few weeks will be harmless.

    Give it a good soaking with the hose.

    A hose will have little effect compared to last night's rain, which may have been the thing that caused the problem.

    dont worry the rain will wash it into the soil and the grass will process it like a mini bio unit

    I imagine the 2 years of rain since the OP posted have worked wonders. :p
