Los Osos, California, is a coastal community of approximately 15,000 people. The city has an urbanized core of small lots that for generations were served by individual onsite wastewater treatment systems. Over time, as the urban core density increased and the small lots and the number of systems per acre became too great, nitrogen pollution resulted. In addition, code-sized systems would not fit on the small lots and had far exceeded system design life.
