Water: Septic (Onsite / Decentralized) Systems
EPA Decentralized MOU Partnership Papers
In 2012, the EPA Decentralized MOU Partnership developed four short papers for state, local, and tribal government officials as well as interested stakeholders, which include information on the uses and benefits of decentralized wastewater treatment and examples of where they have played an effective role in a community's wastewater treatment infrastructure. These papers include an introductory paper as well as three papers detailing the economic, environmental, and public health related aspects of decentralized wastewater treatment.
