To help local conservation districts address homeowner septic system issues, WACD has developed a septic system tool kit for districts to localize. The tool kit includes an informational brochure, suggested ranking criteria, a homeowner self-assessment and a homeowner contract. Each document can be edited to include local information and regulations.
The tools were developed by WACD in cooperation with the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality as part of WACD’s 319 grant. The Non-Point Source task force reviewed the information in late May. For more information on the septic system program and how it ties in to watershed planning, contact the WACD watershed coordinator at 632-5716. More septic system information can be found on the EPA’s website.
