Advantages of Septic Systems over Public Sewer Systems

Many people don't understand that private septic systems offer many advantages over public sewer systems. Septic systems provide simple, effective onsite wastewater treatment, as compared to sending waste to a public wastewater treatment plan. Therefore, septic systems allow homeowners to avoid the high cost of sewer lines and allow groundwater to be recharged onsite, making more clean water available for use. Septic systems treat the effluent naturally and allow water to seep into the ground, which keeps moisture on site to help plants grow and replenish the water supply.

Septic systems offer environmental advantages over sewer systems, as using a septic system lessens the risk of raw sewage discharges from treatment plants. Aging sewer lines can leak untreated effluent into the soil and therefore contaminate local groundwater.

If properly installed and maintained, septic systems offer many environmental benefits to public sewer lines and systems. For more information on the many advantages of septic systems, contact Soils and Environmental Services, Inc. Serving Northern Virginia and Washington DC communities such as Sterling, Reston, and Lorton, Soils and Environmental Services, Inc. specializes in the inspection, installation, and maintenance of all types of septic systems.
