A well designed and implemented septic system restoration program is a sensible, affordable and realistic long-term solution to reducing, limiting and containing septic system nitrogen from septic systems. If setup properly it will stabilize, limit and control septic system nitrogen contamination. A properly developed restoration program will also provide the benefits of an impact study providing the vital information needed to properly evaluate future steps in reducing septic system nitrogen, such as selecting locations for septic-to-sewer projects.
This is not a check-the-box pump-out or inspection program. A restoration program works with all stakeholders, public officials, tax listers, GIS, land records, real estate professionals, financial institutions, owners and contractors to implement education, incentive and improvement projects to reduce the impact the septic systems have on our environment.
Reducing, limiting, containing and learning as much as possible about your problem before acting is always good policy and is generally the first step in evaluating and developing a sound and economical solution to any problem.
How do you learn, evaluate or improve the impact of a “device” that is determined to have a negative impact on your environment when you don’t know how many you have, their condition, if they are working properly, if they are being maintained properly or if their hazardous waste is being disposed of appropriately?
