One of the most exciting paradigm shifts in One Water management is the integration of smaller onsite systems that collect, treat, and reuse water within individual buildings or at the local scale. As an emerging innovation, the success of onsite non-potable water systems depends on strong collaboration between municipal utilities and public health agencies to ensure projects protect public health and meet water quality standards.
NEHA is raising awareness for SepticSmart Week from September 17 - 21, 2018, alongside the Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA).
SepticSmart Week is focused on getting homeowners and communities to care for and maintain their septic systems. During SepticSmart Week, the U.S. EPA provides information to homeowners on proper septic system care and maintenance, helps local agencies promote homeowner education and awareness, and educates local decision makers about wastewater infrastructure.
More than one in five households in the United States depend on a septic system to treat their wastewater. When used properly, septic systems help protect public health by reducing the risk of disease transmission, protect the environment, and reduce costs to the community from large infrastructure and energy needed to collect and treat large amounts of wastewater. Being septic smart, or knowledgable about septic systems, is a good way for homeowners to lengthen the lifespan of their septic systems by keeping them regularly maintained and knowing when to contact a septic system service professional if a probelm occurs.
This annual event educates homeowners, communities, and provides tools for local organizations to promote septic awareness. Visit the SepticSmart Week homepage for a complete list of resources or see some of the highlighted resources below.
