Early Levittown's cesspools were often a stinky problem



I remember the horrible odor that our cesspool at 10 Hyacinth Road would occasionally emit. It was totally gross. I was an only child so our cesspool could handle what we flushed into it, but many Levittown families had at least three children so they were the ones that had the most problems.

We all had cesspools in our front yards. It wasn't until sometime in the late 1970's that sewer lines were put in. At that time many homeowners filled their cesspools and got connected to the sewers.

Every street in Levittown was dug up so the lines could be installed. They were very efficient and it only took a day or two to install and repave a whole street. Many of the cesspools CAVED IN... sometimes with people standing on them.
