A couple of things that crossed my desk today are a good reminder that decentralized wastewater system installers will always have a demand for their services.

First, a report out of Spartanburg, S.C., showed nearly one third of local septic systems could be failing. The local news account from Fox Carolina stressed homeowners need to check their systems and steered interested residents toward information about grants to upgrade systems.

The story is a great reminder for your customers about the importance of regular system maintenance. Tell them about the potential costs of ignoring a septic system and encourage them to call you or their pumping professional at recommended sevice intervals.

I also received an email today from the Value of Water Coalition, a nonprofit group that is pushing programs to ensure the safest drinking water supply. Comprised of groups including the Water Environment Federation, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies and the U.S. Water Alliance, as well as Xylem Inc., it’s launching a new clean water campaign to improve the country’s water and wastewater infrastructure.

It’s critical to remember the link between the onsite systems you install and maintain and the clean drinking water supply we all enjoy. There’s no way to overestimate the importance of your role in providing clean water to the public.
