Mountain Talk: A Septic Subsidy Program in Southwest Virginia
In this edition of WMMT’s Mountain Talk, we hear from Adam Wells of the Upper Tennessee River Roundtable and the Guest River Restoration Project. Adam is helping with the Guest River Residential Septic Program, a cost-share initiative aimed at making it affordable for homeowners in the Guest River Watershed to install or repair their septic systems. In this podcast, Adam discusses the program, and why it’s important for our water, our health, and our region’s future.

This discussion was made possible by a grant from Penn State Public Media’s Water Blues, Green Solutions project.
