Introduction of New Sewage Systems in High Priority Neighborhoods
Result: more environmentally friendly anthropogenic activity
less nutrient buildup in waterways used for drinking/recreation
less harmful algal bloom events
better recreational activity
less water runoff
less chance for groundwater contamination
less chance for pathogens to reach any water way
less soil erosion
less chance for toxins built up in sediment to reach water
Who to involve?
Local water quality monitoring groups
potentially can provide guidelines to staying safe during construction as far as drinking water/runoff
potentially can provide monitoring of water quality/noise while construction occurs
potentially can provide ordinances and rules to keep workers/residents on the same page
local public health department for air quality tracking and documentation of acute/chronic symptoms of residents near to construction
Step 2: address residents, figure out who is going to participate
Step 3: address construction company, create budget
Step 1: identify "High priority neighborhoods" through demographics from census and water quality data from state EPA
Step 4: begin construction, have weekly check-ins with local officials
How long will construction be daily? How long is the process expected to take?
How do I know this is safe for my neighborhood?
Who can I talk to if I have questions/comments/concerns?
What benefit do I see from this as a homeowner?
Why do this now?
How does this affect groundwater runoff?
