A Practical Tool for Predicting Nitrogen Fate and Transport from Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems

The Soil Treatment Unit Model (STUMOD-FL-HPS) is a simple to use practical tool for evaluating fate and transport of nitrogen in onsite wastewater treatment systems (OWTS). This simple practical modeling tool provides OWTS professionals an opportunity to rapidly evaluate multiple scenarios in a relatively short time and aids in the selection of nitrogen reduction strategies in a given watershed. A demonstration of the modeling process using a case study will be presented, leaving the attendee with a new approach to nitrogen reduction.

A Different and Better Approach to Onsite Sewage Management Programs

Managing a multi-faceted Onsite Sewage Treatment and Disposal System (OSTDS) Operating Permit Program from inception to a statewide recognized program CAN be successfully accomplished. Like a big sandwich, take it one bite at a time using a “different and better” approach. Presenters will discuss their challenges and victories, despite tight budgets and personnel challenges. Leave equipped to enhance your own program.
