Solutions to Nitrogen Pollution: Installation of Nitrogen Reducing Septic Systems

This two-part series will showcase real-world solutions to Buzzards Bay’s largest source of nitrogen pollution, septic systems. Learn about two Coalition projects to upgrade traditional residential septic systems with nitrogen-reducing technology.

Both workshops will take place at the Coalition’s headquarters at 114 Front St., New Bedford. Optional field visits will show participants nitrogen-reducing septic system installations at homes in Falmouth and Acushnet. Workshops are free, with lunch provided. Participants may be eligible for TCH credits for Title 5 Soil Evaluator and System Inspector. RSVP to Korrin Petersen at (508) 999-6363 x206 by March 23.
