STOP DUMPING TREATED SEWAGE
INTO LAKE CHAMPLAIN!
PEOPLE DRINK THAT WATER!!!
There are dozens of sewage treatment
plants all around Lake Champlain in
Vermont, New York and Canada.
They are dumping treated sewage
into Lake Champlain while
one-third of Vermonters are drawing
their drinking water from Lake Champlain!
This is disgusting!
The organic Lake water mixes
with the treated sewage ,and then it is
treated a second time with
chloramines or mono-chloramines
which, when mixed with the
organic Lake water, can create
trihalomethanes and increase
the incident risks of cancer!
This is a threat!
CLEAN WATERSHEDS NEEDS SURVEY:
The Clean Watersheds Needs Survey (CWNS)
is a comprehensive assessment of the
capital needs required to meet water quality goals
set in the Clean Water Act.
Every four years,
the states and EPA collect information
about publicly owned wastewater collection
and treatment facilities, stormwater and
combined sewer overflows control facilities,
nonpoint source (NPS) pollution control projects,
decentralized wastewater management,
and estuary management projects.
Information collected includes estimated needs,
including costs and technical information
to address water quality or water-related
public health problems,
location and contact information, populations served,
flow, effluent, and unit process information,
and NPS best management practices.
This information is used by EPA
to document national needs in a report to the
which assists in budgeting efforts.
The data are also used to help measure
environmental progress, contribute to
academic research, provide information
to the public, and help local and state government
to implement water quality programs.
VOTE for Cris Ericson 2018
for United States Congress
the sewage treatment
to face inland,
instead of into
and provide “treated
water” to industrial uses,
rather than dumping it into
one-third of Vermonters draw
their drinking water!
