Septic Issues

Septic Issues

Most of us don’t give much thought to our waste management systems at the cottage – unless they stop working! Yet these systems are crucial to the maintenance of our water quality and the purity of the lakes and rivers that we enjoy so much.


Signs That Your Septic System is in Trouble:

•Drains or toilets are backed up or running slowly

•Sogginess in the ground around the septic tank or leaching bed

•Unusually green or thick grass growing in or around the leaching bed

•Significant algae growth in or around nearby lakes or waterbodies

•High levels of nitrates, bacteria or other contaminants in well water


The Muskoka Watershed Council has produced an excellent brochure dealing with the maintenance of your septic, to keep it functioning at an optimal level and prolong its life.
