Interesting. A couple of questions and comments, if
you don't mind.

On dog poop causing dangerous bacterial levels in
runoff, is there a study or two you can refer us to on
this? What's your source?

And what would be a suitable low-cost treatment

Perhaps this is another argument for building a
dedicated rainwater harvesting system too high for dog
