Regular maintenance and inspection of a system can protect public and environmental health, increase system longevity, and protect private property use and value. The goal of this course is to reduce the number of failing on-site sewage systems in the Houston-Galveston region and improve overall water quality. During this free three-hour course, participants will receive an overview of the two types of systems, information on system maintenance and inspection, and details on available resources to maintain, repair and replace aging systems. This course is designed to instruct and educate homeowners on the basics of septic system and onsite sewage facility (OSSF) maintenance and visual inspection. It does not provide for or allow homeowners to inspect their own aerobic system in place of a maintenance contract.
