Important to remember:

  • Water Conservation – reduce volume by using low flow toilets, spread laundry out throughout the week
  • Don’t flush –  klenex, unused meds, oils/grease or wash paint brushes, minimize garbage disposals
  • Keep vehicles off tank and drainfield and don’t ride snowmobile over in the winter (pushes frost down)
  • Winterize – insulate (tall grass, snow, insulation, etc) and if away for week, based on snow conver, consider tank heater to prevent freezing


  • If deep well, have tested for fecal and nitrate
  • If shallow/sand point; chlorinate in spring, have well tested for fecal and nitrate and/or consider point of use treatment for drinking
