You can help control or eliminate flooding in your
drain field by keeping excess water away from it.
It is important that you take care of the
drain field for your septic
system. By keeping it in good condition you will have a far less
likelihood of trouble down the road with your system.
You should plant only grass over the top surface and around the general
area of your drain field. Tree and large shrub roots can damage or clog
the drain field so keep these types of items far from your drain field
Never drive heavy equipment or park vehicles over or on any part of your
system. The weight from these types of vehicles can cause the soil to
compact or damage to the drain pipes, tank or other components.
You can help control or eliminate flooding in your drain field by keeping
excess water away from it. You can do this by simple maintenance and
common sense ideas such as keeping your rain gutters, your roof drains,
basement sump pump (if you have one)
and other rainwater flow diverted away from the drain field. Remember,
excessive water can slow down the treatment process and may cause
backups in your plumbing fixtures.
