Alternative Septic Systems

Did you know that for some people, regular septic systems are not an option?  If you do not have the space due to the proximity to ground or surface water, have poor soil or are in an area overcrowded with septic systems, you may need to go another direction.

Some newer alternative options are available that use plastics media, sand or peat to treat wastewater.  There are still other systems that use disinfection devices, lagoons and wetlands, and aerators.  All of these systems require annual inspections.  Your systems installer or local health department should be able to help you with information about maintenance or any other special needs for these systems.
