Why Stay On A Septic System?

Top 5 Reasons for Preserving Onsite as a Viable, Even Preferred, Sewage Management Option:

  1. Better protection of public health is possible
    1. Examples:
      1. City of Austin loses 1MGPD sewage from collection system for decades
      2. City of Austin sewage spills 1-2 times/week into streets and creeks
  2. Better Protection of the Environment
    1. Examples:
      1. From Lake Buchanan to Lake Austin, average water quality is good, even though surrounnded by agriculture & septics - some from before permitting, some from before the new rules
      2. Town Lake, on the other hand, has average water quality that is much worse - at one time publicly declared as unfit for human contact - but is surrounded by sewer lines and very few septic systems
  3. Preserve Texas Rights for Texas Property Owners
    1. Private industry must compete to acquire and retain customers
      1. Competition improves service
      2. Utilities are factual monopolies, not required to compete for your business
  4. Preserve Consumer Choices for Resource Management
    1. Septic systems allow beneficial reuse of the wastewater on the site.
      1. Water reuse reduces resource demands, and water bills
      2. Nutrients from wastewater reduce fertilization requirements that run off and pollute rivers and streams.
      3. Organic content of wastewater reduces soil amendments/toppings that also run off.

With a septic system, you retain your right to reuse your water, not waste it.
