New Extension Fact Sheets about Onsite Septic Systems

When someone decides to buy land for a home site or build a house, he needs to contact a realtor and/or home builder who has a reputation of providing solid advice regarding all aspects of the land buying and/or home building process.

When someone decides to buy land for a home site or build a house, he needs to contact a realtor and/or home builder who has a reputation of providing solid advice regarding all aspects of the land buying and/or home building process. Information about neighborhood quality, proximity to good schools, number of rooms, kitchen fixtures, the land area, and number of bathrooms are standard talking points between the client and the realtor or home builder. Oftentimes, however, household wastewater treatment features –like septic systems, are not discussed in great detail.

Dr. Sergio Abit, State Specialist for Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems, recently published two fact sheets designed to provide realtors and home builders key information that they need to offer solid septic systems-related advice to their clients. The fact sheets provide basic information about various septic systems and answers to possible septic system-related questions that clients would ask, among others.
