Septic Tanks & The Environment


It is really important to properly maintain your septic system properly. Regular professional checks and troubleshooting are imperative, not only in order for your system to function properly, but for it to be safe. Many people forget that a poorly installed or maintained septic system can have a negative impact on the environment. Make sure your septic tanks are in a good shape, or else you endanger the health and well-being of your neighbors.


If your septic tanks have not been inspected by professionals in a while, it may cause lots of problems. A malfunctioning system produces nitrates and phosphates, which can find their way into freshwater supplies. As a result from this, algal blooms and weeds start rapidly growing in the vicinity.


On top of that, algal blooms pose a big threat to lakes. When a large number of newly formed algae die, they create a loss of oxygen in the water. This event (hypoxia) creates a dead zone in the water, and living organisms cannot survive there. Hypoxia can be disastrous for any body of water.


Unmaintained septic tanks can contaminate water, thus making it unsafe to drink. Additionally, a clogged septic system might lead to wastewater and sludge making their way to the surface. This is hazardous to both people and animals alike – it can lead to diseases and other infections. The only way to prevent this from happening is to schedule regular inspections and maintenance checks for your septic system.
