Innovative Evapotranspiration System Reduces Nitrogen and BOD Challenges for New Mexico State Park

New Mexico’s 3,000-acre Bluewater Lake State Park in the Zuni Mountains sits at an elevation of 7,550 feet with access to the1,200-acre Bluewater Lake. The park offers camping, boating, hiking, birding, horseback riding and fishing and features bathrooms, showers and a RV dump station. Two septic systems handling wastewater from the park were compromised and not operating properly and the leachfield was clogged due to high strength BOD and required replacement.
