The health of a community and its water resources must be protected from the harmful effects of inadequately treated wastewater. These harmful effects include waterborne diseases or other illnesses, and the pollution of rivers, streams, lakes, groundwater supplies, or other water bodies. Today, public health officials play an important role in regulating wastewater systems. NALBOH continuously strives to assist local board of health members (or other public health governing bodies) in understanding wastewater systems, as well as understanding the role they play in governing health agency programs and activities.
