I wish to landscape my yard. What do I need to know?
Prior to any landscaping or construction of any additions on your lot, check with the Health Department to determine the location of your septic system. Decks, sheds, and structures of any type cannot be built over the septic system components. These types of structures will prevent access to the septic components for required maintenance and repairs. Additionally, building structures may potentially damage the septic components leading to premature failure. Large plantings, such as trees and shrubs, will also potentially damage the system through excessive root growth that eventually clogs the system. Plants with shallow root systems, such as grass and ornamental flowers, are acceptable.
