How to take home the Empress Of Effluent Award!

As North America alternates between sweltering or being inundated with so-called 100 year rain events (which now seem to actually happen every year!) no one can deny that we are having some pretty weird weather?

And so …… to recognize those innovative, inventive, or just plain hysterically funny efforts WasteWater Education is inviting you to submit your media campaign for our “Don’t drown your drain field!” summer competition. Just send us an email! or via Twitter @WasteWaterEd

And the prize? Our Empress Of Effluent Award!
