PROTECT YOUR SEPTIC SYSTEM

  1. Never drive or park over your system
  2. Plant only grass over or near your drain-field to avoid damage from roots.
  3. Make sure gutter downspouts are directed away from the drain-field.
  4. Fix leaky toilets and faucets as soon as possible. Never waste water.
  5. Use the toilet to flush only human waste.
  6. Do not pour cleaner, medicines, oil, grease, paint, pesticides and other toxic products into the system.
  7. Distribute your laundry loads over the week.
  8. Consider composting rather than using a garbage disposal
