Grand Opening

In attendance were about seventy-five engineers, wastewater managers, community planners, environmentalists, and regulators. The facility will serve as a the flagship location for a statewide program on proper onsite treatment of wastewater. The CDWM hopes to begin training sessions as soon as this fall.

Seventy-five attendees begin the tour of the training center at the conventional gravity displays.
