Project Title & Description
Vieques Septic System Project
This project seeks to survey the status of old decaying septic systems, which discharge into the nearby creeks and ocean, in five densely populated waterfront neighborhoods on the north coast of Vieques, PR. The grant recipient will educate low income residents about the potential water pollution and public health threats posed by the deteriorated septic systems on the local water bodies surrounding the affected communities. They will also engage the community in developing recommendations for future plans to remedy the situation.
