Commercial Webinars

Affordable, Low-Impact Solution in Florida

In Vero Beach, Florida, a proposed expansion of the city’s gravity sewer system was met with strong opposition from residents concerned about the cost and the expected disruption to roads and landscaping. Others objected to the idea of having to connect to city sewer when their own onsite systems were working just fine. To effectively launch its sewer project, the city needed a more affordable, less-intrusive option that didn’t require mandatory connection. This webinar explains how an Orenco liquid-only (effluent) sewer was the perfect solution.
