This year is the 11th anniversary of SepticSmart Week! SepticSmart Week is an annual event that occurs the third week of September to bring attention to the importance of caring for and maintaining septic systems.
Per the US EPA's website, the EPA’s SepticSmart program is a nation-wide initiative to share information on the proper care and maintenance of septic systems and encourage public stewardship in caring for these wastewater treatment systems. The SepticSmart program provides a wealth of online resources for homeowners, local organizations and government leaders to facilitate an understanding on:
how to properly care for and use your septic system,
how simple septic maintenance can save you money and protect your property value,
why maintaining your septic system can protect your family’s health and the environment.
Below are a few of the education resources available through the SepticSmart program. For additional information and resources, visit: SepticSmart Education Materials | US EPA
