Dwayne Smith, Director of Engineering & Capital Projects for Washoe County Community Services Department presented an in-depth explanation of a septic system - its density of use in Washoe County, its operation, its care and maintenance, and its advantages in replacing groundwater.
also discussed water quality with an emphasis on the amount of nitrates present in the water.
suggested that if you have a well, you can have your water tested to determine its nitrate content.
What you put into your septic system can determine the amount of nitrates in your water.
also discussed the problem of cracks in the asphalt roads that occur throughout Washoe Valley.
This is a major problem and a major expense which has had no viable solution thus far.
They will continue to fill the cracks, and they hope that the $150,000 grant given to the UNR
materials professor who is studying the problem will aid in a producing a permanent solution.
encouraged anyone who wanted further information or who had any questions to call his
office at 954-4652.
