Two presenters from the University of Florida will discuss conventional and advanced septic system technologies during a free program from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 29, at the Lyonia Environmental Center, 2150 Eustace Ave., Deltona.
Assistant professor Dr. Mary Lusk and extension agent Andrea Albertin will explain how conventional systems work and how new technologies enhance the removal of pollutants, including nitrogen, which can cause algae blooms and fish kills.
Most existing septic systems are not designed to reduce pollution and protect waterbodies, the aquifer, springs and rivers.
Homeowners, elected officials, city planners and others who want to protect Florida’s springs and aquifer are encouraged to attend.Reservations are not required. For more information, call Katrina Locke or Tom Carey at 386-736-5927.
