So Long Septic Tanks

So Long Septic Tanks

A $4 billion plan is coming to Suffolk County, N.Y. The plan is to reduce nitrogen pollution in groundwater and surface water by eliminating septic systems and cesspools. More than 250,000 cesspools will be eliminated countywide and the county will replace them with wastewater systems or connect properties to existing sewer districts. Approximately 75 percent of county residents rely on cesspools or septic tanks. If the plan is fully implemented, poor water quality could reverse in the next decade. Since the 1980s, concentrations of nitrogen have increased on Long Island surface waters. According to the Long Island Commission for Aquifer

City of Kingston Separating Sewer and Stormwater Systems

City of Kingston Separating Sewer and Stormwater Systems

The city will borrow $130,000 to design a project to separate the sewer and stormwater systems in an effort to help the environment and the capacity of the wastewater treatment plant. The entire separation project is estimated to cost more than $1 million. The current combined sewer overflow system generates 92 percent of the wastewater discharged into the Rondout Creek in a typical year. Removing the stormwater inflow from the system would reduce overflows into the creek, which would ultimately improve its water quality.

Sewer Project Turned Down by Residents

Sewer Project Turned Down by Residents

A sewer project that would have been very beneficial to the area was recently voted against. The project would have connected more than 450 homes along the six-mile Connetquot River to an updated sewer system. The cost was going to be $26.4 million. The project had significant costs but was going to be 100 percent fully funded by federal and state grants. This didn’t come without a downside though. Residential homes would add an additional $119 on average to their bills per year. Suffolk County isn’t the only place with these issues. Another community voted to sewer almost 2,770 homes

Sewer and Water 101

Summer is indeed here in all its glory.  We know that means rainfall is here, too.  In fact, in many parts of the country we have had record setting storms.  Precipitation can heavily contribute to an overloaded sewer system.  As a nation, we have over 700 communities that utilize combined sewer systems.  There are some Cities that have separate sewer systems but this is no small financial investment.  Even so, municipalities have the burden of making sure these systems are functioning. It can pose a health risk and even more financial strain if they are not. There are small contributions
