Septic Tank Maintenance is Your Responsibility

Septic systems require maintenance. As a property owner, it is your responsibility to have your septic tank maintained and pumped out on a regular basis. Studies have shown that routine pumping of a septic tank is necessary for proper performance and treatment of wastewater. Faulty systems may lead to costly repairs and the compromise of water quality and public health.

If you have not had your septic tank pumped out within the last 3-5 years, please act responsibly and hire a licensed septic tank hauler to pump out your tank. Routine pumping will provide you with the peace of mind knowing that your septic tank is in good working order and capable of handling additional wastewater from your home.
