Cape Cod Beer
Barnstable Clean Water Coalition has teamed up with Cape Cod Beer to create Clean Water Wednesdays, an educational series that will be held at Cape Cod Beer. Join the experts as we deep dive into topics that are affecting not only our water on Cape Cod but globally as well! #CleanWaterMatters
This month's topic: Digging for Clean Water!
Nitrogen pollution from our septic systems is a major problem for Cape Cod’s waters. Please join us at the brewery on August 24th to learn about the Town of Barnstable’s Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan (CWMP), the work being done at the Massachusetts Alternative Septic System Test Center (MASSTC), and the different innovative and alternative (I/A) septic systems that are being used on Cape Cod. Working together, we can find solutions to reduce nitrogen in our local waters.
Our speakers include:
- Paul Ruszala, Senior Project Manager for the Town of Barnstable Department of Public Works
- Emily Michele Olmsted, I/A Tracking Environmental Project Assistant for Barnstable County
- Maureen Thomas, Independent Water Resource Consultant and Project Manager for I/A septic system installations and currently working for KleanTu.
