These maps illustrate the location of septic systems in the County of Santa Barbara – especially communities with dense placement of septic systems. These maps were made by GeoDigitalMapping, Santa Barbara, a business owned by former HTO Board Member John Robinson. Before these maps were made (in 1999) nobody knew who was on sewer and who was on septic systems. The digital mapping of wastewater infrastructure is now in common use around the state of California and across the country. John Robison gifted Santa Barbara County with the first quadrant map, when it was completed, during a Board of Supervisors hearing on October 1, 1999.
