I/A Septic Systems (OWTS) Funding and Financing



Tuesday May 3, 2022
8:30 – 11:00 am

Registration is open to the public and is now available at

No education credits will be awarded for attending this event.

The two biggest issues for permitting and adoption of the new generation of Enhanced I/A septic systems
(OWTS) are management (RME) and funding. The former was addressed at a charrette held at the NEWEA Annual Conference in January. See a readout of that event.

Funding and financing will be addressed via this Zoom webinar. We will focus on three areas of need:

  1. Moving promising technologies through the permitting process
  2. Standing-up a pilot RME
  3. High-volume consumer adoption
  4. There will be presentations with Q&A from State Revolving Fund (SRF), Federal and private investor perspectives.

Speakers are expected to include:

  • Maria Pinaud, MassDEP, Municipal Services, Director
  • Nate Keenan, Mass Clean Water Trust, Deputy Director
  • Zach Lowenstein, US EPA, Office of Wastewater Management, Decentralized Wastewater Program Manager
  • Ian Dombroski, US EPA, Region 1, Southeast New England Program Coordinator
  • Jason Lee, Quantified Ventures, Director
