It provides specific information for having a healthy septic system that will not the environment – plus gives the warning signs for maintenance and/or replacement. It will be available online as well as in print.
Other brochures we have produced and are available include one on the San Lorenzo River Watershed, one on Non-Point Source Pollution and one on Erosion, plus a cartoon piece on stopping cigarette butt pollution.
