    WU HT 01 05 DESCRIPTION This project directed by the Consortium of Institutes for Decentralized Wastewater Treatment will develop a model decentralized wastewater field practitioners training curriculum for use throughout North America The curriculum will consist of a series of noncredit short courses organized similar to a college curriculum The primary topics that the curriculum will address include 1 planning basic issues 2 soil and site evaluation 3 technologies 4 design and engineering 5 installation construction and inspection 6 operation and maintenance and 7 troubleshooting and repair High priority subtopics in four of the seven topical areas of the curriculum will be selected for full development of detailed training modules including trainer s guides and audio visual educational materials These will form the foundation of the basic curriculum and include 1 soil and site evaluation 2 water movement and treatment in soils 3 decentralized technology overview and 4 septic tanks The project will enhance Consortium communications and distribution of information primarily via a Consortium wide electronic web developed to facilitate the development assessment and electronic delivery of these training materials and their distribution to trainers who will deliver the training to the end users Subcontractors who will lead substantial parts

    in making wastewater decisions These products include 1 Fact sheets that describe the impacts of wastewater on health environment and the economy 2 A rapid assessment process to gather local information for the purpose of roughly characterizing current wastewater conditions 3 Scenarios that will promote discussion and build a better understanding of local wastewater issues 4 A starter s kit including specific steps to initiate a process for solving community wastewater needs 5 A process guide to assist service providers in utilizing the tools for any target community In order to develop these products the project team will pilot them in at least two Vermont communities and seek at least one additional community outside of New England These communities are early in the process of understanding their wastewater needs and will therefore be good testing grounds to determine how a collection of tools will promote discussion and understanding about wastewater and wastewater management After the field tests we will meet with several service providers to review the products and their pilot applications The result of this meeting will be to refine the products and identify candidate locations for final testing The final step in the project is for one or

    WU HT 02 13 DESCRIPTION The Green Mountain Institute for Environmental Democracy GMI in partnership with the Education and Training subcommittee of the National Decentralized Water Resources Capacity Development Project NDWRCDP will organize and facilitate two regional workshops in support of the National Decentralized Water Resources Capacity Development Project NDWRCDP These two workshops will convene experts working on decentralized wastewater projects and service providers that work with communities to address their wastewater needs Through these workshops the NDWRCDP hopes to learn what kinds of tools are needed to help assistance providers more effectively communicate wastewater management options such as centrally managed decentralized systems to communities facing wastewater problems what existing decentralized wastewater systems tools and risk communication materials are presently available for water wastewater issues how these organizations work to effectively help communities address environmental problems what factors affect community consideration of decentralized wastewater management options and what issues influence community decision making and the decision making process In addition the service providers will learn from ongoing demonstrations and national experts more about decentralized wastewater systems making them better advocates for the technology Finally these meetings are expected to provide the opportunity for attendees to form a stronger network of

    Decentralized Water Resources Capacity Development Project held a briefing and discussion in Washington D C on emerging smart clean and green approaches in water management systems that use treat store and reuse water efficiently at small scales and that blend designs into restorative hydrologies Big pipes transporting water to and wastewater away from our cities are often old and under capacity Many existing methods of water use and wastewater treatment are wasteful energy intensive and environmentally disruptive Ultimately as climate change exacerbates droughts and storm events populations grow and water becomes scarce these systems may not be sustainable Decentralized water technologies and designs are the keys to enhancing the performance of the nation s aging centralized water stormwater and sewer infrastructure These technologies including rain gardens and green roofs water efficient appliances and landscaping decentralized wastewater treatment and reuse systems will beautify our cities and towns stimulate our local economies enhance water supply recover energy and nutrients and improve our health and environment This briefing and discussion brought together decentralized systems experts federal agency representatives foundations and others to inform participants about the potential for decentralized systems to achieve ecosystem economic social and other benefits for the nation Participants also
