Malfunctioning and improperly installed septic systems are a health hazard. With nearly 20,000 new septic systems being installed in Maine each year, proper installation is critical to protecting the health of Maine citizens and the quality of Maine waters. During the winter of 1998 to 1999, the Division of Environmental Health, Subsurface Wastewater Unit developed a training and certification program to broaden the use of proper septic system installation techniques by installers. The following links will be of use to installers.
