Malfunctioning septic systems are a source of pollutants in groundwater and lakes. It is important to inspect and maintain your septic system. The more water and material that go into your septic system, the more that comes out into your drain field. If nutrients seep underground into the lake, aquatic plant growth and algae blooms are likely results. It is important for your family’s health and the lake’s health to be sure your septic system is properly maintained.
- Keep Septic Fields to property setback distances.
- Pump out septic tank every 2-3 years.
- Conserve water by using low-flow toilets, faucets and showerheads to reduce water volume.
