Spruce up your yard this summer while prolonging the health of your septic system! Here are some tips from our technicians:

  • Keep vegetation over the absorption area
  • Keep the vegetation mowed
  • Don’t build anything over any part of your system
  • Do not allow sprinkler lines to be installed over your tank
  • Divert rainwater away from the tank and absorption area
  • Level depressed areas over the tank or absorption area to prevent ponding/pooling of rainwater
  • Don’t drive over any part of your system
  • Don’t plant anything over any part of your system
