Barnstable Clean Water Coalition To Discuss Cape’s Wastewater Crisis

Filed Under: Non Profit News

The Barnstable Clean Water Coalition will present an information session on the Cape’s wastewater Crisis on Monday, Feb. 27, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at Cape Cod Beer, 1336 Phinney’s Lane, Barnstable.

Much needed changes are coming to address how to reduce the flow of wastewater loaded with nitrogen and other pollutants into local waters.

Learn about the regional implications of regulations proposed by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, which are designed to improve coastal and inland water quality by accelerating reductions in nitrogen releases from traditional septic systems.

The evening will conclude by hearing about BCWC’s neighborhood demonstration and testing project for innovative and advanced septic system technologies and other non-traditional solutions for controlling nutrient loading in the Three Bays watershed. A bigger issue is how will the average homeowner pay for these septic system upgrades and sewering. Find out about the financing options available, including the newly revised Barnstable County Septic Management Loan Program.
