Why haven't I gotten these reminder postcards in years past?

About a year and a half ago, North Kingstown began using the Rhode Island Wastewater Information System program (RIWIS). The program was developed by Carmody Management Services, working along with the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, the University of Rhode Island, and a number of Rhode Island communities. 

The RIWIS program allows the member communities to track septic system maintenance and inform their residents regarding their septic systems using a web-based database. It is through this new database that the postcards are generated.
