You can sue the neighbor and the two other property owners for nuisance which is an unreasonable interference with your use and enjoyment of your property.
Damages (monetary compensation in a lawsuit for nuisance) are an inadequate remedy because of multiplicity of lawsuits for the ongoing dumping into your pond and because land is unique.
Therefore, your remedy in your lawsuit for nuisance is an injunction to stop the sewage being dumped into your pond.
