Why is this a health and safety issue?

By law and for the health and safety of our residents, the District is required to comply with the proper treatment of wastewater—or run the risk of expensive state or federal fines or lawsuits. If raw sewage spills onto land or into water, it can present a health risk to our communities and pollute our lakes and waterways.
