I recently talked to a guy who said I could hunt three "sewage ponds" that are "loaded with ducks" next season . The water is pumped into the first pond that then runs off into the second then into the third. He irrigates costal from the third.
I assume the water is treated somewhat before it's pumped into the first pond.
Would you have an issue eating ducks taken off it?

Ducks will not be that healthy if the water is bad I would think. They spend a lot of time in water few of us would swim in or drink without harm. Settling ponds which I suspect these are should not have that big a bacteria population compared to untreated sewage. I would hunt them and eat them.
