Earth Day, Every Day Webinar Series: E2D2 In The City! The Past, Present, and Future of Combined Sewers in New Jersey

Share This:

Combined sewer overflows (CSO’s), have been in use since the middle 1800’s in many large American cities including 21 cities in New Jersey. Initially, they were thought to be a hygienic solution to open-pit sewers. Now these systems are outdated and cause for public and ecological health concerns. The EPA has mandated that all US cities with CSOs eliminate or reduce their overflows. So, what are New Jersey cities doing to reduce their CSOs and what can YOU do to help make this work as sustainable as possible? Join Liz Pyshnik, Program Coordinator with the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program, to find out!

Our Earth Day, Every Day webinar series (lovingly called #E2D2) focuses on steps everyone can take to protect the environment. We can all do our part to take actions that make our homes more sustainable, from environmentally-friendly lawn care, to recycling, to conducting a home energy audit.

New this fall… E2D2 in the City!
Our last 3 sessions will focus in on specific issues affecting our cities and urban communities. Learn about safe practices for urban soil, combined sewer overflows, and urban wildlife.

Join us on Mondays at 6:30pm to learn from experts at Rutgers Cooperative Extension. These live, interactive sessions are approximately 1 hour. To join you need either a computer, tablet, or smartphone with speakers. Sessions are provided via Zoom. These sessions are free, but you must register to participate.
