What is septic?

Decentralized wastewater treatment, or septic systems, refers to permanent systems that treat wastewater at or near its source, without connection to sewer systems. The economic and environmental advantages of septic systems prompt many homes and communities to make the switch when modifying, replacing, or expanding their wastewater treatment systems. Through proper design, maintenance, and operation, septic systems provide a compact and powerful form of treatment for even highly sensitive sites.
