Onsite Wastewater Options: In-depth program coming to View on April 18

The Adirondack Research Consortium invites all to discuss Onsite Wastewater Options for Small Rural Communities in the Adirondacks at a program at View in Old Forge on Wednesday, April 18th. The program will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The training event will focus on the discussion of onsite wastewater treatment options to improve septic system performance and meet state and local regulatory requirements.

Advances in onsite wastewater treatment technologies provide communities with options for challenging sites that will provide for better treatment and more protection of public health and the environment.

Many Adirondack communities are faced with site limitations that prevent the use of a conventional septic system, or a community system that is old and needs to be upgraded.

Commercially available alternative onsite wastewater treatment technologies that can address the many shortfalls of conventional systems in challenging topographic areas will be among the subjects of discussion.

The program includes in-depth morning presentations and an afternoon field trip to visit installed systems.

On-line registration is available with a credit card at: ADKresearch.org on the Specialty Conference tab.
