Honeymoon Bay Septic Pilot Study Update

Innovative Technology Installed and Being Tested to Improve Water Quality

Spokane Conservation District is collaborating with the Washington State Department of Ecology, Spokane County, and local property owners to improve the health of Newman Lake by finding an alternative to failing septic systems. A pilot project, started this spring, aimed at installing small-scale enhanced treatment upgrades for two sites in Honeymoon Bay. This state-of-the-art technology has been shown to be far more effective at protecting public health and water quality than the systems currently in use.

A pilot project will install enhanced treatment upgrades at up to three proposed sites in Honeymoon Bay, Newman Lake.

The Spokane Conservation District has been leading several water quality projects at Newman Lake. As part of these projects, we would like to gather some information from lake residents so that we can better understand the issues and perspectives of the community. This survey can remain anonymous, and you also have the opportunity to add your email at the end if you would like to receive further information. Thank you for your participation!
