The Western Canada Onsite Wastewater Management Association and its affiliates will be promoting septic awareness during the week of September 14 to 18. The purpose of this initiative is to promote proper operation and maintenance of onsite wastewater systems.
Properly designed and maintained wastewater treatment systems effectively reduce or eliminate most human health or environmental threats posed by pollutants in household wastewater. However, they require regular maintenance or they can fail. Failing systems are expensive to repair or replace, and poor maintenance is often the culprit. Systems need to be monitored to ensure that they work properly throughout their service lives.
