Protecting Your Water System and Septic Tank
If your home has a septic system, it requires regular maintenance to prevent costly damage and repairs. Septic systems are designed to safely use natural processes to treat and dispose of the wastewater generated in your home. If a septic system is not maintained, untreated human waste may contaminate drinking water supplies and negatively impact the environment.
Fayette County has prepared a brochure explaining how to protect your water and septic system. This information is available in PDF * format for viewing and printing.
