Don't Be a Sewage Slug

I f your septic system isn't working properly, its wastes can pollute our drinking water with bacteria that may cause sickness.

Or these wastes can pollute our streams with nutrients that cause unnatural growths of algae. Millions of these tiny plants, known as a  bloom,  turn the water murky green. In warm weather, as they die, they use up oxygen in the water that fish need to survive.

With a little care, you can keep your septic system operating efficiently, so it won't pollute drinking water or streams. Your foxy friends hope you will be a good neighbor to the environment.

Caretaker's Checklist

Most household septic tanks contain over 100 chemicals
which could pollute groundwater. Yet, if properly sited, properly
designed, and properly main-  tained, septic systems have little adverse
effect on the environment.
