INFORMATION FOR HOMEOWNERS - Cobb & Douglas Public Health

 

Your septic system is something you may not think about until you have a problem. Though it can be costly to repair a failing septic system, a commitment to careful use and routine maintenance can result in a system that may function properly for many years.  The Georgia Department of Public Health, Environmental Health Section’s A Homeowner’s Guide To On-Site Sewage Managment Systems provides a brief explantion of how septic sytems operate, as well as proper useage and maintenance guidelines.  Additional information and resources for homeowners can be found at the Environmental Protection Agency’s SepticSmart website.   Information about septic tank additives may be found here

When you do encounter problems with your septic system, many “quick fixes” could end up being a waste of money and may even cause harm or permanent damage to your system. To protect the investment in your system as well as your home, always remember to contact the Cobb & Douglas Public Health, Center for Environmental Health for technical support before making any repairs or changes to a property served by a septic system.  

Please be aware that any installation, repair, or modification of a septic system will require a permit from our department before any work can be performed.  Additionally, all installers, pumpers, and soil classifiers must meet state certification requirements to take part in the construction, repair, or maintenance of septic systems.
