It’s Septic Smart Week!

This week, September 14-18, 2020 is SepticSmart Week! Each year, this week is celebrated to provide outreach and encourage homeowners and communities to care for and maintain their septic systems. During SepticSmart Week, state and local governments, water utilities, and other organizations can help inform homeowners on proper septic system care, assist in promoting homeowner education and awareness, and educate local decision makers about infrastructure options available to improve and sustain communities, and that can help protect drinking water sources.
