Onsite and Decentralized Systems

Onsite wastewater treatment systems continue to be a VIABLE option for the treatment and dispersal of wastewater. Every state across the United States has a population served by a decentralized (onsite) wastewater system. 

Did you know  at least 20% of the U.S. population relies on an onsite system to properly treat their wastewater? Did you know that on a yearly average (over the last four years data is available), nearly one-third (⅓,  33%) of new residential construction across the U.S. will install an onsite system for wastewater treatment? Did you know that percentage is as high as  50% for some states? 

Proper maintenance of your onsite system (commonly referred to as a septic system), protects your health and the health of our environment, avoids potential treatment system problems, and saves you money.
