Abstract

A study of soil and water samples obtained from Ford's Sanitary Landfill and a control area north of the landfill were investigated for the presence of bacterial pathogens on November 24, 1972, and March 8, 1973. This study revealed the presence of several bacterial pathogens of animal, plant, and human significance in the landfill area. The control area investigated exhibited only normal soil microflora of nonpathogenic significance.Ball State UniversityMuncie, IN 47306
