It may be causing other problems such as algae blooms in a nearby lake or pathogens entering the groundwater where you and I get our drinking water. Everyone generates wastewater. When we "use" water it doesn't go away, it becomes dirty and is wastewater or sewage. Wastewater contains pathogens (disease organisms), nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, etc.), solids (organic and inorganic), chemicals (cleaners, disinfectants, etc.) and water. Wastewater must be cleaned up before it is returned to the environment to be "recycled". The treatment may be done at a murficipal facility or an individual wastewater treatment system (often referred to as an on-site septic system). Regardless of the system chosen, the treatment system must be well managed to meet the water quality standards. Good management of an on-site system starts with the homeowner. The effectiveness of the treatment system depends on the water use habits of the homeowner, the fixtures and appliances and product selection. The ideal situation would be to have wastewater enter the system as evenly as possible throughout the day or week. Excessive water use puts an unnecessary load on the system. Allowing faucets to drip, fixtures to leak, and using running water to rinse dishes or brush teeth are wasteful water habits. In the course of our daily living many materials used in the home enter the wastewater treatment system. Unwanted medications, drain cleaners, disinfectants md bleaches contain toxins and other ingredients that are harmful to the beneficial bacteria in the soil that kill the pathogens and remove the nutrients from the wastewater. Routing the recharge water from a water softener system, basement drainage tile water (sump pumps) or doing all the laundry on one day overloads the system with large volumes of water. Our water use habits have a direct effect on how we maintain and service an on-site wastewater system. A publication titled "Septic System Owner's Guide" is available from the University of Minnesota Extension Service that will help homeowner's understand how to operate the system efficiently and how to maintain the system to prevent costly repairs. Please contact your local county extension office for more information.

Extension report I III Cinda Carlson District Nutrition Education Program Coordinator Swift County Benson, MN 56215 320/843-3796 NUTRITION EDUCATION ASSISTANTS' (NEA'S) ROLE WITH EXTENSION Want your child to go on to college? Or your spouse to get that promotion at ........ work? If they have accessed the services of the Nutrition Education Program, they have a/better chance of C C e s s . viding information about good nutrition .is the mission of a group of people called Nutrition Education Assistants. This program is offered through the University of Minnesota Extension Service. Financial Support for Extension's Nutrition Education Programs is provided through contracts with Minnesota Department of Human Services Food Support Program, USDA Food Nutrition Service Food Stamp Program, University of Minnesota College of Human Ecology, University of Minnesota Extension Service and many state, county, and local partners. As the District Coordinator of Nutrition Education Assistants in the West Central District, I have many chances to observe what NEA's do. Some of the many things NEA's do are visit Senior Centers and dining sites to educate this population about better nutrition. Research has shown that seniors who are well nourished have lower medical bills and may stay in their homes longer than those who are not. NEA's also teach lessons to school age children about good nutrition and also may include instruction on safe food handling and preparation. Many teach the value of eating a good breakfast each day and will provide easy menus to promote this. NEA's believe that eating breakfast consistently may make children better learners with fewer behavior problems. NEA's teach families with tight budgets how to make good food purchases or how to use the foods they have available to them in the most efficient way possible. NEA's often try to find alternative recipes to replace the easy and attractive choices offered ' at fast food restaurants, or to offering bo;ed or frozen meals, most of which do not meet nutrition needs of the families and cost more than most budgets allow. Using food resources wisely may provide incentive to families to manage other areas of their lives better. One group of NEA's provides a seasonal holiday lesson on creating inexpensive gifts. Cost of ingredients, nutrition content and instructions on preparing the gift are all compiled by the NEA and presented to clients. This is a popular lesson for low-income families because most people enjoy giving gifts but often cannot afford to buy them. NEA's are located in Extension offices in each of our fourteen counties and are always available for nutrition questions and concerns.
