Barnstable Clean Water Coalition (BCWC) works to restore and preserve clean water throughout Barnstable and is preparing to launch a pilot project to test alternative septic systems. Many partners are involved in our very important work to improve water quality on Cape Cod including the Massachusetts Alternative Septic System Test Center (MASSTC), located in Sandwich at Joint Base Cape Cod. MASSTC is one of only two sites in the United States that test alternative septic systems. BCWC is working closely with MASSTC to help identify new generation systems that fit our criteria: low cost and long lived superior performance. MASSTC will also work with us to develop individual monitoring protocols for all systems. To learn more about MASSTC, click HERE to visit their website.
Stay tuned for more information on BCWC projects and partners in future posts.
