Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In an attempt to protect groundwater and surface water quality in the face of rapid residential development, a New Jersey municipality established an "Onsite Wastewater Disposal Management District." After 15 years of having the program in place, the municipality asked Rutgers Cooperative Research & Extension to update the management program database. The newly developed database is automated to generate form letters, invoices, late notices, and license renewals, and it is linked to the municipality's geographic information system. The database has increased productivity, improved tracking abilities, and has resulted in faster identification of systems needing inspection for the municipality.
