2019 Onsite Short Course

Since 2002, NEIWPCC has coordinated and hosted the Northeast Onsite Wastewater Treatment Short Course and Equipment Exhibition.


We are pleased to announce that the 6th Northeast Onsite Wastewater Treatment Short Course and Equipment Exhibition will be held April 2 – 4, 2019 at the Mystic Marriot in Groton, Connecticut.

This conference, which is hosted and coordinated by the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) in partnership with its member states and US EPA, is offered approximately every three years (last held in Taunton, MA in 2016). It has become a reputable forum for sharing information about onsite/decentralized wastewater issues and projects in this region, as well as featured research and case studies from all over the country. Conference sessions will reflect the 2019 theme: “Technology of the Future TODAY!

Onsite and decentralized wastewater treatment continues to experience advances in technology, field testing, and management. Community applications of these new technologies are changing the way we protect water resources and the environment.  Also, as in years past, there will be a special session on “Onsite A to Z” for those individuals new to the field.

Conference attendees will include many of those in New England and New York State involved in onsite wastewater treatment, including state, federal, and municipal governments; private sector (i.e., installers, designers, service providers); technology manufacturers; academia; and watershed organizations.

The Short Course will be a “one-stop” training/conference event for wastewater operators, onsite wastewater professionals and more. The Short Course will offer Training Contact Hours and Continuing Education Units for attendees from NEIWPCC states.
