Municipalities with Public Sewer Systems Double

The more successful hamlets are now big enough, or close enough to recreational or protected water resources, that State and Federal funds become available for public sewers and treatment systems. The number of municipalities with treatment systems increased from roughly one-third in 2009 to two-thirds in 2027.
