In Mexico, resort hotels and restaurants are permitted to drill holes into the bedrock and pump human waste from septic tanks into the holes, says Abigail Alling, director of the Planetary Coral Reef Foundation, Bonsall, Calif. The bedrock along the Yucatan coast consists of porous limestone that allows the sewage to seep out into the water along its once-pristine beaches. The sewage pollutes the coastal water, and its high content of phosphorous and nitrogen damages the coral reefs.

Alling says the governments of Egypt, Maldives, Kenya, Australia, Bali and Israel also are planning to construct the systems. She says the foundation's interest in promoting the system is in preserving coral reefs. It is using money made from sales of the systems to fund the nonprofit group's other scientific projects.
