The environmental impact of onsite wastewater treatment facilities is an issue that remains top of mind for many developers and engineers when it comes to the planning of new residential developments. Costs associated with utilities, assessments and taxes have a significant impact on the pockets of taxpayers moving into new communities. Septic systems can provide an excellent alternative to central wastewater treatment facilities by keeping wastewater treatment local and replenishing natural underground aquifers.
Join us at the Florida Gulf Coast University for this educational seminar to help realtors, developers and engineers learn more about new technologies available for onsite wastewater treatment. New onsite system technologies can be integrated into design and planning for residential application to help meet numeric nutrient criteria and ensure that municipalities do not exceed the TMDL nutrient threshold.
Discover the environmental benefit and long term cost savings of development with onsite wastewater treatment.
Join Kevin Sherman, P.E., PhD, the Promised Lands Section of APA, the Calusa Chapter of FPZA, and FGCU for a presentation about planning and implementing new technologies for onsite water treatment. Learn about the options available for on-site treatment in residential applications and how TMDLs can be adequately addressed.
