If you are a current homeowner whose property uses an onsite wastewater system, it is crucial that you not only understand how your system works, but that you also understand how to properly take care of it by performing the necessary maintenance. The links below are designed to help homeowners better understand their systems and how to take care of them. Properly maintaining a system not only protects the environment but your property as well.
The SepticSmart Homeowners page has several resources to help homeowners not only understand the system that they have in place on their property, but also educate each homeowner on the importance of the role that they play in protecting groundwater. These resources include types of systems, maintenance, and what to do if your system fails.
The EPA has put together several Quick Tip videos for SepticSmart Week.
