November 2015 Onsite Wastewater Mega-Conference

The Onsite Wastewater Mega-Conference will be held on November 3-6, 2015 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  The Conference is a collaborative effort among the National Onsite Wastewater Recycling Association (NOWRA), the National Association of Wastewater Technicians (NAWT), the State Onsite Regulators Alliance (SORA), and the Virginia Onsite Wastewater Recycling Association (VOWRA).  State drinking water programs should consider attending the conference to learn how properly constructed and maintained onsite and decentralized wastewater systems can provide an option for communities to address source water protection challenges from failing septic systems.  Approximately 600-800 people are expected to attend this event, including regulators, manufacturers, engineers, and scientists.  During the conference, education sessions will focus on: groundwater and reuse; soils and design; regulation; nutrient removal and system performance; and more.  Visit the NOWRA web site for more information and to register.
