The Health Department's Septic System Program and Operation & Maintenance Program work to ensure that septic systems are located and installed correctly and kept in good working condition. These efforts reduce the risk of contaminating groundwater and surface water, reduce the risk to people from exposure to untreated sewage, and help extend the working life of septic systems.
