EPA to hold second annual SepticSmart Week

Sept. 19, 2014

LENEXA, Kan. — SepticSmart Week, which will begin this coming Monday, features outreach activities that encourage homeowners and communities to care for and maintain their septic systems.

LENEXA, Kan. — EPA announced plans to hold its second annual SepticSmart Week during Sept. 22-26, according to a press release.

SepticSmart Week outreach activities encourage homeowners and communities to care for and maintain their septic systems, stated the release.

The release reported that approximately 25 percent of all U.S. households depend on septic systems to treat their wastewater and failure to maintain a septic system can lead to back-ups and overflows, which can result in costly repairs, polluted local waterways and risks to public health and the environment.

“When homeowners protect their septic systems it’s good for their health, their neighbors’ health and their pocketbooks,” said Ken Kopocis, deputy assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Water.
