Questa Survey Identifies Septic Hotspots

In 2000, then-Assemblywoman Hannah-Beth Jackson captured $2 million in state funding for septic-to-sewer projects in Santa Barbara County, to be administered by County & Environmental Health Services (EHS). HTO worked closely with EHS on the description for allocating these funds. The first big step was the Questa Septic Systems Sanitary Survey for Santa Barbara County. This study has become the bible of septic work not only for Heal the Ocean, but County officials, too.
