💧 Managerial & Administrative Aspects of Decentralized Community Wastewater Systems (VT)
September 20, 2023 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PMFree
Development of a decentralized community wastewater solution involves a significant amount of technical work by hydrogeologists, engineers, and environmental specialists to determine the overall layout and physical components of such a system. Small communities tend to rely heavily on consultants to guide them through the steps in this process, but the community should also be active in many of the non-technical actions and decisions required – such as choosing a management structure, understanding the permit conditions to be followed, and negotiations for land or easements. This session will provide a general overview of the steps and responsibilities when developing or operating a community wastewater system, administrative aspects of the Vermont Indirect Discharge Program, and will provide some lessons learned in the land acquisition process for infrastructure projects.
This training is intended for active and potential board members, volunteer “task force” members, managers, and administrative staff, and wastewater operators.
