Septic System Update

New Website Pages for Septic Health

In our region of Haliburton, since most of our properties are near shorelines, it is particularly important to maintain our septic systems properly because our soil and bedrock conditions are not always optimum for treating wastewater and removing nutrients that can negatively impact our lakes. Incomplete treatment due to a poorly functioning septic system can result in health risks and water quality problems that affect our lakes, your property value and wildlife. Inadequate septic system wastewater treatment, which could be caused by leaking septage, can allow excess nutrients to reach our lakes, degrading our water quality and promoting algae or weed growth.
