Be Septic Smart - many home and business owners never think about maintaining their septic system until the system fails (from the U.S.)

Be Septic Smart

A recent issue of Pollution Prevention View, a newsletter from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, gives, on pp. 3, an interesting overview of septic tank system. It has a catchy starting paragraph, which says:

Would you buy an expensive car and never change the oil? Or would you use your vacuum cleaner for twenty years without emptying the bag? Of course not! But many home and business owners never think about maintaining their septic system until the system fails and they see or smell sewage bubbling up in the yard or flooding the basement. Proper maintenance will protect your property value and save you from the hassles of a failed system.

In addition to a simple flow diagram, the brief article explains how a septic tank system works. The 4-page newsletter is expected to be of great information to the new users. The newsletter is attached.
