Source Water Protection and OWWS-Are We Drinking the Same Water as Dinosaurs?

February 2, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The water cycle now, as in the time of dinosaurs, is a closed loop; no new water is created. The water cycle is a complex model, continuous movement of water within/around Earth, from surface water to clouds, precipitation to groundwater, drinking water to wastewater. The cycle does not end with wastewater, as water continuously moves within the cycle, which is why source water protection is critical. This presentation is an overview of source water protection, the role properly functioning onsite wastewater systems play in maintaining healthy, well-functioning watersheds. Best management practices specific to onsite systems will be addressed, along with how the onsite wastewater treatment system industry impacts the often-misunderstood link between wastewater, watersheds, and drinking water protection. So yes, the water you drink today may very well have been drunk by a thirsty T-Rex a long time ago.
