Description

When properly designed, maintained, and used, septic systems can provide adequate treatment for most pollutants. There are approximately 800,000 septic systems in Indiana, and the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) estimates that approximately 200,000 of these residential wastewater disposal systems are inadequate and have failed or are failing to protect human and environmental health. This publication examines the various types and causes of septic system failures and their environmental effects.
