In New York’s Suffolk County (Eastern Long Island) nitrogen pollution has adversely affected groundwater supplies used for drinking water, impaired major estuaries and lakes causing eutrophication, algal blooms, and fish kills, and has contributed to the demise of a once nationally significant shellfish industry. The Phase II Demonstration of Innovative/Alternative Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems program aims to combat these issues by demonstrating nitrogen reduction technologies for single family residences in an effort to test their performance and expedite their approval.
For this program Waterloo Biofilter Systems is donating two advanced nitrogen septic systems. Waterloo Biofilter Systems is excited to be a part of this initiative and looks forward to helping the people of Suffolk County Reclaim Our Water.
