The focus of these materials is single-family residential systems. The US EPA, along with state and local government entities recognize the importance of decentralized wastewater treatment systems as an essential component of the wastewater infrastructure. Through routine inspections and proper operation and maintenance, onsite wastewater treatment systems can be a permanent and effective part of our wastewater infrastructure. These training materials are intended to provide a knowledge base for service providers in this growing industry.
