How do I neutralize my soil after sewer water has surfaced in my yard?
Secure the area so children and animals do not have access. Apply lime to the soil for 24 hours. Maintain pH at 12 for 2 hours and then 11.5 for 22 hours. Remove, bag, and dispose of soil in the dumpster. For large releases contact a professional.
