Wise Water Words

Check Your Septics In September

septic tank picSeptember begins a new series of Wise Water Words from OSFR.
This month's Words is on healthy septic systems.

Having a healthy septic is very important to our water quality. Agriculture, lawn fertilizers and septic tanks are the primary sources of excessive nitrogen and phosphorous in our water.

Take some time this month to consider if your septic tank needs maintenance or pumping. If your septic tank and its drain field are faulty, nasty elements could be leaking into our aquifer.

Test your knowledge about your septic system. . .
