Wastewater treatment has been called the greatest environmental success story, but meeting federal regulatory standards in the face of a growing population requires ingenuity and investment. The City of Corvallis is considering three options for removing end-of-pipe discharges from the Willamette River: irrigation at the Trysting Tree Golf Course, irrigation at area farms and biological treatment in created wetlands. Conservation may also play a role in reducing the amount of water flushed through the system and thus the "downstream" impact.
All attendees are free. Optional buffet lunch $10. Register online by Thursday, Nov. 4, or hold a seat w/out lunch by emailing: email@example.com with “City Club Nov 8” in the subject line.
