What to do if your system is failing
If your system exhibits one or more of the failure indicators, contact your county health official for assistance in assessing the situation. Some times the system may be able to be repaired without complete replacement. Sewage contains harmful bacteria, so keep pets and children away from the failure. Limit water use until repairs can be made. If a new system or repairs are needed, a permit is often required from your local health department.
