Did you know that as a homeowner you’re responsible for maintaining your septic system? Did you know that maintaining your septic system protects your investment in your home? Did you know that you should periodically inspect your system and pump out your septic tank? Most people think that septic tanks aren't that common but there are hundreds of septic tank systems that operate in St. George City alone. If not properly maintained and inspected these systems can contaminate groundwater or convey waste into the stormwater system and eventually to our sensitive waterways.
The Southwest Utah Public Health Department regulates and permits the septic tank systems in our area. If you have any questions about maintenance or other septic tank requirements please see the resources below or visit the health department website at:
