Independent. Impartial. We provide access to information to empower sustainable, local, wastewater decision making.
To provide education which increases public awareness of the link between clean drinking water, safe recreational waters, environmentally sustainable surface and groundwater with watershed based, best management practices related to appropriate wastewater systems, technology, treatment and management.
At least 25% of the US population relies on onsite systems to safely treat their wastewater.
Probably the leading cause of failure is flooding due to leaky toilets and faucets or through improper landscaping and watering.
Not only is this a large future bill for repairs or replacement it's also going to make a mark on your water and electricity bills!
Here's a link to our One Page Helpful Hints Handout!

Every year, in March, we participate in Fix A Leak Week! And award the Golden Plunger Award!
