A Septic System is an on-site recycling system which treats waste water and returns it to the groundwater. If properly designed, installed, used, and maintained, a septic system can do its work safely and efficiently for many years. Improper design, installation, use and/or maintenance can lead to premature and costly failure.
A Septic System typically consists of two components: the septic tank and the effluent disposal area (leach field). These components treat and renovate the waste water so that it may safely return to the groundwater.
We can help you decide what type of system is best for your property and the space you have. In NH we can use "alternative systems" which allow a reduction in the height above water table the septic field can go and also a reduction in the footprint the field will take up.
