Septic Awareness Week
September 18 - September 22
September 18 to 22, 2023 is Septic Awareness Week, and the Western Canada Onsite Wastewater Management Association urges you to consider both what goes down the drain, and how you maintain your septic system. 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.
Throughout Septic Awareness Week we’ll share information on the importance of maintaining septic systems along with tips for operation. In some regions of Western Canada, delivery of our Septic Sense program will take place during that week as well. Delivered in a virtual format, these webinars assist homeowners in understanding why they need to properly maintain and care for their septic systems.
More septic system information for homeowners can be found on our website.
