Understanding Challenges to Septic System Maintenance in New York State Watersheds
Our research project seeks to learn about your understanding of septic systems in specific New York communities. This will help identify where support can be offered and improvements can be made. We hope to use what we learn to help future NYS programs and planning initiatives.
The project is focused on two main study areas:
the Lower Seneca River watershed (surrounding Skaneateles Lake) in Central NY
the Peconic River & Shelter Island Sound-Gardiners Bay watersheds on Long Island
How to Participate
Do you work in the wastewater industry or in connection with septic systems?
