How do I know if I have a septic system? 

You may already know that you have a septic system. If you're unsure, here are some signs that you probably do:

  • You use well water.

  • The waterline coming into your home does not have a meter.

  • You show a "$0.00 Sewer Amount Charge" on your water or property tax bill.

  • Your neighbors have a septic system.

Once you have determined that you have a septic system, you can find it by:

  • Looking into your home's "as built" drawings.

  • Checking your yard for lids or manhole covers.

  • Contacting a septic system service provider to help you locate it.
