Septic System Care and Maintenance


The majority of private sewage disposal systems in DuPage County consist of a septic tank and a septic field. The septic tank removes solids from household wastewater. After the wastewater exits the tank it flows under the ground through a series of pipes to the gravel filled trenches of the septic field. Proper maintenance of a septic tank is important to the proper functioning of the septic field.
