What’s this “Ban Septic Systems” stuff anyhow?

The Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board claims septic systems are the major cause of pollution in Malibu’s watershed. Watersheds deal with surface water, such a shedding water from a roof, raincoat or the earth’s surface to a lower level.

Water on the earth’s surface in Malibu is eventually absorbed or shed to the ocean.

However, septic systems are subterranean, so do not shed water onto the earth’s surface but directly down toward the center of the earth via gravity. Not into the ocean.

Therefore, they cannot be a major source of ocean pollution so we should not be required to pay for unneeded wastewater treatment facilities.
