EEF:  The True Cost of Sustainable On-site Treatment Systems. Over the last twenty years, a proliferation of new on-site treatment technologies has taken place. At the same time, many states have updated their regulations with more stringent requirements for on-lot systems. Because of these factors and a building boom, the on-site treatment system market has seen tremendous growth. The focus on treatment system selection has become centered on the upfront cost or "price" of the system. This presentation focuses on different costs that need to be analyzed when selecting a system including: upfront cost, operational cost, environmental cost and public health cost. All of these costs must be analyzed for the future sustainability of on-site systems.
