"The outfall of the septic tank system from the housing area at Woodbourne has turned low-lying land near the Air Force wireless transmitters into a foul-smelling swamp, part of which is pictured above. The conditions existing there have moved the Marlborough County Council to issue an order on the Air Force requiring them to abate the nuisance as being a menace to health".
