GET STRAIGHT TALK ON SEPTIC AND SEWER POLLUTION

The Brevard Indian River Lagoon Coalition is pleased to announce that we will be hosting another Lagoon Straight Talk event at the Titusville High School, Performing Arts Center January 19, 2023, 6-8pm.

Our Free admission Lagoon Straight Talk events provide knowledgeable speakers and a question and answer forum for our guests, as well as exhibiting local non-profits and Lagoon restoration related service providers.

This January event in Titusville will focus on septic and sewer systems, one of the main contributors of pollution to the Indian River Lagoon. Speakers will provide insight on the issues septic and sewer systems pose on the health of the Indian River Lagoon and the innovative solutions available to address these challenges.

Presentations will be made by Dr. Brian LaPointe, Florida Atlantic University at Harbor Branch; Dr. Randal Parkinson, Florida International University; Todd Swingle, Executive Director, Toho Water Authority; and Terri Breeden, Brevard County Natural Resources Department.

After their presentations the speakers will form a panel on stage to answer your questions. This is usually the most interesting part of the event, so bring your questions.

To assist residents who need to replace old polluting septic systems, learn about the County's incentives for upgrading to new advanced treatment systems. See a full sized demo system and talk to a local installer to get a quote and answer your questions.
