November 28 Webinar to Focus on Septic System Management
Posted: November 20, 2012
Proper wastewater treatment helps to protect your health and the environment. Household wastewater from sinks, toilets, washing machines, and showers carries dirt, soap, food, grease, and human waste down the drain and out of your house. Wastewater also carries disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens as well as nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and organic wastes. Onlot septic systems are designed to remove or breakdown these contaminants before they enter groundwater-the source of drinking water via wells or springs-or nearby lakes, streams, or wetlands. Wastewater treatment is often out-of-sight and out-of-mind until problems occur. Problems are inevitable if you aren’t caring for your onlot septic system properly so knowing the basics about your household system and taking simple precautions can prevent problems. It’s a wise investment to keep your system working well because replacing a failed system can cost thousands of dollars. If you need to install a new system or replace a system, you will also learn about DEP approved alternative options to traditional septic systems.
