The public review of the standard W203 Municipal Wastewater Treatment in Northern Communities using Lagoon and Wetland Systems has begun.
The CAWT’s Dr. Gordon Balch is a member of the Technical Subcommittee that was responsible for writing most of the draft standard. Dr. Balch has extensive knowledge and experience in cold temperature and tundra wastewater treatment.
According to the standard’s scope, “this standard specifically addresses the planning, design, operation and maintenance of intermittent/seasonal discharge lagoon and wetland systems that are most appropriate for use in Northern regions, where effluent discharge is either difficult, or not possible in colder months.”
The document is available for public review until January 16, 2019.
