Ensuring adequate capacity for wastewater treatment and disposal is essential for economic development and environmental protection. Wastewater treatment practices are generally very effective, but many communities outgrow the capacity of their treatment systems and exceed the ability of the receiving waters to assimilate the discharges of those systems. Limits on wastewater discharge can limit development. However, careful planning and sound investment can ensure that wastewater capacity needs and water quality standards are achieved.
