Protect springs yes, but be reasonable

Published Dec. 30, 2007 (Opinion)
The adequate management of septic tanks is a national and state concern. A 1998 report to the National Onsite Demonstration Program expert panel meeting at Ohio State University showed that more than 7,000 septic tanks malfunction somewhere in the U.S. each day, or roughly 2.6 million units malfunction each year.

Marion County is clearly part of this national issue, which we began to address three years ago by investing over $1 million to study our future water needs. From this study came policy for protecting our water resources flowing into two of the state's most pristine and productive springs.
