This schematic, from Solviva, shows how septic systems built in accordance with DEP regulations leach pollution straight into groundwater, and how this pollutes our drinking water and causes algae infestations in our coastal ponds.

Better Farm's Executive Director Nicole Caldwell will offer a presentation on greening waterfront homes at this Saturday's New York State Federation Of Lake Associations (NYSFOLA) conference in Hamilton, NY.

Lodging is all booked up but you can still arrive for sessions day-of.

Caldwell's presentation, "Saving Our Lakes, One Home at a Time," starts at 3:15. The lecture will explore how septic tanks, greywater runoff, lawns, erosion and roadways spell big trouble for lakes. Caldwell will offer ways to protect water bodies from our way of life.
