What To Do With Number Two

Feb 25, 2013

You probably don't spend a lot of time thinking about what happensĀ after you flush the toilet. But when something goes wrong with your septic system, suddenly you're knee deep in it.

Vermont changed its wastewater permitting laws 5 years ago.We'll check in on how that change has been received, and learn about septic systems, wastewater treatment, and some innovative methods of dealing with that stuff everyone has, and nobody wants.

We'll talk to Dave Whitney, adjunct professor at the University of Vermont and owner of Eco solutions, and David Mears, Commissioner of the Department of Conservation.
