Constructing Sewage Collection Systems over the Edwards Aquifer
Abstract:The Edwards Aquifer is one of the most valuable resources in the Central Texas area. This Aquifer provides water for municipal, industrial, and agricultural uses as well as sustaining a number of rare and endangered species. A number of cities rely on it as their principal source of drinking water. To preserve these beneficial uses, this aquifer must be protected from degradation resulting from human activities. For example, residential or commercial development, the installation or repair of sewage collection systems, or the installation or upgrading of gasoline storage tanks could contaminate the aquifer if not done properly.
