Impact of Sea Level Rise on Septic Systems in Coastal Communities
It is estimated that the Atlantic sea level is rising one eighth of an inch per year which may result in a 6-inch rise over the next twenty years. Associated increases in storm frequency, duration, storm surges, and high tides are expected to severely impact the economy of many coastal communities. There is growing concern over the infrastructure in the region including the efficacy of onsite wastewater systems. Sea level rise will cause a concurrent rise in regional and local groundwater tables, thus reducing the treatment and disposal capacity of septic systems. Get a brief primer on sea level rise and learn about current research being done in this topic of emerging concern.
