The Onsite Sewage Treatment Program protects public health and the environment by improving wastewater treatment through research-based workshops, as well as outreach to homeowners, small communities, professionals and policy-makers.
OSTP workshops for septic professionals combine classroom and field instruction.
The OSTP team advises homeowners about septic system installation and has created the Septic System Owner's Guide with instructions for septic system use and maintenance.
OSTP instructs home and cabin owners about the installation, operation, and management of septic systems, safeguarding the health of their families and the environment while protecting their septic system investment.
