Septic Awareness Week: September 14-18, 2020
Why should I maintain my wastewater treatment system?
- Save money-- maintaining your system can help avoid costly repairs or replacement
- Reduce or eliminate risks to human health-- unmaintained systems can cause exposure to pathogens which are a risk to public health
- Protect the environment-- proper system operation and maintenance ensures we aren’t negatively impacting source and surface waters
- Recycle water-- wastewater is cleaned through the soil and returned to underground aquifers
