NO septic system is permanent!

         If you think you can install your septic system and forget it, well, forget it. They all require maintenance. The days of installing a septic system and walking away from it, out of sight out of mind, is fading quickly. Back in the 60′s and 70′s the prevailing thought was: lets put these things in and figure out a better way, later.

The standard septic system was a septic tank with a leach field of gravel and pipe. The rural folks learned how to live with these units and did very well with them, thank you. They required some work, but…hey, it was a part of the homestead and a part of what was their life.

The “better way” seemed to point towards a collective, community-type disposal method that had a hefty price tag to it. The 80′s and 90′s brought on the realization that these standard septic systems or On-Site-Sewage-Facilities (OSSF’s) were here to stay, and stay in a big way.

 The 1980′s brought a shift from city dwellers to a new suburbia that required homes to be placed on OSSF’s. Other utilities, like water and electricity, were developed and were in very high demand to create the new “American Dream”. If there were a large enough cluster of these homes, that it brought sufficient tax revenues, cities would annex them and develop batch plants to serve the  waste-water needs.

The dream houses that  extended beyond the reach of municipalities have wrestled with the standard septic system and in doing so, with larger waste-water  usage rates, changed the standard of these septic systems.

The 1990′s brought more people from the cities and along with them came political, environmental and social concerns that greatly impacted everything about a septic system. General, basic guidelines that served counties for years as regulations were thrown out and new more aggressive laws were put in their place.

Money was to be made on proprietary septic systems that costs thousands of dollars more than the standard septic system. Laws were passed, governmental agencies were developed, environmental concerns were raised and industry championed the cause.

Fast forward to 2011. Everything is moving faster than ever, including septic systems and their regulations. State regulators are passing new laws each year, County commissioners are tweaking the by-laws whenever deemed necessary. State legislature has put “teeth” into the laws now being passed that place monetary consequences on every aspect of the septic system process.

Civil engineers, Soil scientists, Site evaluators, Designated Representatives, Installers I and II’s and Aerobic maintenance providers all are involved in the septic solution. Is it being solved? One thing for certain……NO septic system is permanent!
