SepticSmart Week in Minnesota

Did you know that over 600,000 Minnesota residents and businesses rely on a septic system to treat their wastewater from things like toilets, sinks, and washing machines?

This week (September 14th-20th) is SepticSmart Week in Minnesota, as declared by Governor Tim Walz.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) says this week is a good time to revisit the Do’s and Don’ts of septic systems. The two big Do’s are:

  1. Inspect it (at least every 3 years)
  2. Protect it

Check out this guide by the MPCA to learn how to do these things and to learn what not to do.

By properly maintaining your septic system, you can help protect human health and the environment. You can even save money as well, as septic system repairs caused by a lack of understand about how the system works, or simple neglect, can be quite expensive.

Learn how your septic system works at the MPCA’s Healthy Septic Systems website, which also has additional information for homeowners.
