A Creative Combination : Merging Alternative Wastewater Treatment with Smart Growth
University of Rhode Island, Cooperative Extension Water Quality Program

Suburban sprawl has induced a need to design onsite wastewater treatment facilities to create a more practical and environmentally friendly option for unsewered areas. This manual discusses local planning and wastewater treatment options. Case studies, which include development and design for each, are included for revitalizing main street businesses through cluster systems, alternatives for harborside main streets, rebuilding a historic village with an alternative collection and treatment system, creating a new town center, building a rural economic center, and making new rural neighborhoods.

Alternative Wastewater Treatment for Individual Lots
University of Rhode Island , Cooperative Extension Water Quality Program

There are many options and factors to consider when selecting the appropriate treatment system. This manual discusses real-world case studies where unique site constraints and specific treatment objectives were considered when selecting the appropriate system. Advanced treatment technologies for each of these case studies were selected to protect coastal waters, groundwater supplies, or support pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods where conventional systems were not feasible or would have required widespread and expensive site disturbance.

Application of a Risk-Based Approach to Community Wastewater Management: Tisbury, Massachusetts
National Decentralized Water Resources Capacity Development Project

The Town of Tisbury, Massachusetts is situated south of Cape Cod on the island of Martha's Vineyard. It provides an example of decentralized wastewater management in progress in a coastal island community with nutrient-sensitive resources, a sole source aquifer (only one aquifer available for drinking water), combined with growth concerns. The goals and key elements of their management program, coupled with the process the town has gone through, provide a case history for other communities to adapt to their own circumstances. This overview of the management program includes critical decision-making points, barriers to implementation, status of the implementation effort, and the next steps.

Case Studies of Economic Analysis and Community Decision Maiking for Decentralized Wastewater Systems
National Decentralized Water Resources Capacity Development Project

This download examines how communities consider and value the benefits and costs of different scale wastewater facility options (onsite, cluster, and centralized) in monetary terms, and examines the driving issues, motivations, thought processes and decision-making methods that stakeholders use relative to choices of wastewater system scale. The download includes eight case studies of U.S. communities covering several topics including financial benefits of incremental capacity expansion through implementation of decentralized systems; impacts of wastewater system choices on community growth, development, and autonomy; and the implications for fairness and equity within communities.

Case Studies of Sustainable Water and Wastewater Pricing
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Water

How much customers are asked to pay for any commodity or service sends a signal to them about the value of the product or service. Fees and other charges that reflect the full cost of water service will help customers to recognize the value of that service, and hopefully helping them become more aware of how much water they use and how they use it. This booklet reveals how eight small communities across the country have developed and implemented sustainable pricing practices.

Chepachet Village Decentralized Wastewater Demonstration Project
University of Rhode Island, Cooperative Extension Water Quality Program

The Chepachet Village Decentralized Wastewater Demonstration Project (CVDWDP) began when the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM) performed a shoreline inspection that discovered a number of homes in need of repair and maintenance to their septic systems. Many homes had difficulty with the repairs due to small lots, surface drainage problems, land slopes, and shallow groundwater. RIDEM began working in conjunction with the University of Rhode Island, Rhode Island Independent Contractors and Associates, and non-profit agencies to begin using alternative onsite wastewater technologies to repair failing septic systems and developed a conceptual plan for village wastewater management using computer-generated maps. This booklet summarizes the results of CVDWDP and offers one approach other New England communities can adopt to meet pressing wastewater treatment needs, while protecting public health and environmental quality.
