3rd Annual SepticSmart Week - Get SepticSmart to Help the Environment and Your Pocketbook
Nearly one in five American households depend on septic systems to treat their wastewater. During its third annual SepticSmart Week from Sept. 21-25, EPA will encourage homeowners and communities to care for and maintain their septic systems. These systems pose a threat to water quality and human health when they are not properly maintained. Maintenance can also prevent costly repairs. This year’s SepticSmart Week will also include a focus on advanced septic technologies that offer additional treatment beyond that of conventional systems. In addition to educating homeowners, SepticSmart also provides online resources for industry practitioners, local governments and community organizations to educate their clients and residents.
