Phase II coastal Georgia OSDS inspection, compliance, geolocation and analysis a Georgia EPD 319(h) funded project
The population in coastal Georgia is growing at a significant rate. Coastal cities have limited funding and time to upgrade their municipal treatment plant infrastructure to counter the rise in population. Therefore, on-site septic disposal systems (septic tank and drainfield systems) have and will continue to be heavily permitted. It is extremely important to geo-locate these systems to enable better public health planning. These systems have the potential to impair water quality greatly if not maintained, thus causing serious health concerns to both humans and wildlife.
