Areas of Concern

The colored areas on the map below have been identified in past studies as having an existing or potential pollution problem related to on-site sewage disposal.  These areas had been destined for off-site treatment.  More recently, the areas of concern are being refined, and  through communications with the DEEP, the WPCC and its consultants were able to take a fresh look at the study area, and further investigate which neighborhoods are truly in need of off-site wastewater treatment and which neighborhoods can support continued on-site septic systems with proper management.
