Turner Government and Public Affairs Adds E/One to Growing Environmental Issues Practice

Turner GPA to Help E/One Advance Efforts to Protect Nation's Water Supply from Failing Septic Tanks

Washington, DC (Nov. 22, 2010)-Turner Government and Public Affairs has added to its growing client roster Environment One Corporation (E/One), an industry leader in advanced low pressure sewer technology. Turner GPA will provide government relations and strategic communications services as E/One seeks to influence federal policies to address the serious risk posed by backyard septic tanks to the nation's drinking water supplies.

"Failing septic tanks dump hundreds of millions of gallons of raw, untreated wastewater and other toxic contaminants into the ground and eventually into our water supply," said Turner GPA President Caren Turner. "Leaking, malfunctioning and worn out septic tanks are responsible for most of the groundwater pollution in the U.S. today."

Nearly one in four U.S. households use backyard septic tanks and an average of 40 percent of those tanks do not function properly. Not only is the nation's drinking water threatened by failing septic tanks, but lakes, ponds, rivers, estuaries and other bodies of water are also being polluted.

"We will work to ensure that federal decision makers are not only aware of the problem, but also recognize that E/One's advanced low pressure sewer technology offers the best solution to defusing the septic tank ‘ticking time bomb'," said Turner.
