MORGANTOWN, WV, Jan 22, 2003 -- After the initial introductory offer, the National Small Flows Clearinghouse (NSFC) is offering a poster from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Water Program Operations for $1.25.

Titled "Small Wastewater Systems: Alternative Systems for Small Communities and Rural Areas", (Item #WWPSPE02) provides descriptions of various alternative wastewater systems available to small and rural communities.

This foldout poster also includes descriptions of both onsite and alternative centralized wastewater systems, such as septic tank/soil absorption systems, aerobic treatment units, drip and spray irrigation, sand filters, chamber system mounds, constructed wetlands, composting toilets, low-pressure pipe systems, greywater and blackwater systems, and more. Schematic diagrams are included along with descriptions of how the technologies work.

This poster can serve as a great educational tool for those wanting an overview of alternative wastewater treatment and disposal technologies, and is particularly helpful to local and state officials, managers, planners, public health officials, engineers, regulators, and individual homeowners in selecting the most suitable treatment option for their situation.
