Water Resources: USGS Study

Last year, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed that local septic tanks pose a long range threat to the safety and quality of Joshua Tree’s water supply. To prevent contamination in the future, new developments are now being required to install their own onsite “package sewage treatment” plants– costs to do this will be borne by customers connecting to the new service. This project is a part of the Board’s long term vision to protect the groundwater.
