Salmonella survival in soil.
I have just had a student finish a lit survey on this topic. When I get 
back to the lab I will look up his general findings, Salmonella can 
survive in soil but the length of time is very variable. I would be a 
little suspicious of generalisations about where contamination can move 
to on a hillside. Water moves in very mysterious ways sometimes. They 
can check by adding a harmless chemical tracer and see whether it turns 
up in the fountain.
