Septic Maintenance

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of a cure!

 Please contact us before doing any work on your Private Onsite Wastewater Treatment System (POWTS) other than the routine service maintenance of your septic tank as required under County Ordinance. This includes the placement of covers, risers, pipes, vents, etc. County and State laws require that some repairs, alterations, extensions or additions require permits at the County level, and the State requires that the person performing the work be properly licensed.

Visit the following website to find your property of interest, septic system maintenance reports, past or current maintenance providers, original sanitary permits, designs and site plans or layouts of the system! 

POWTS Search & Reporting Application - provides information regarding the thousands of POWTS installed in Washington County and a method for licensed plumbers to file pumping/inspection reports electronically. If you are a state licensed septic service provider, please log into the website to report the sanitary service maintenance performed.
