effectively managing wastewater

There are many things you should do to ensure the efficient operation of a home's individual wastewater treatment facility, commonly known as a septic system.

You should ALWAYS:
  • Have your septic tank pumped every 2-3 years, depending on the number of people in the household
  • Repair leaking toilets and dripping faucets
  • Maintain a ground cover of grass over the leach field
  • Address potential signs of trouble: slow draining toilets, sewage odors, surface water in the leach area
  • Divert gutter drains and surface water away from your septic system
  • Use a reputable contractor to perform repairs to your system

You should NEVER:

  • Park on or drive over your septic system
  • Dig into your leach field or build anything on top of it
  • Plant trees in the leach field because their roots can disrupt and eventually clog leach lines
  • Dump chemicals or non-biodegradable items into your septic system
  • Connect a sump pump discharge to your septic system
