Septic System Inspections In Maine To Prevent Septic Problems

 Septic Preservation Services has extensive experience working in the septic industry in Maine providing septic services including septic repairs, septic system inspections, OBD services and repairs and septic remediation. As you would expect many of our customers live in remote parts of the state, sometimes on islands or remote locations. However a large number of our customers also live in towns and are still not connected to a town sewer but have an individual septic system instead to process their wastewater. When these systems are working correctly they are a safe and environmentally efficient way to process a property’s waste. However failing systems can:

  • cause a serious health threat to your family and neighbors,
  • degrade the environment, especially lakes, streams and groundwater,
  • reduce the value of your property,
  • be very expensive to repair,
  • and put thousands of water supply users at risk if you live in a public water supply watershed and fail to maintain your system.

If you have a septic system servicing your property it is always wise to be alert to warning signs of a failing system which can include:

  • sewage surfacing over the drainfield (especially after storms),
  • sewage back-ups in the house,
  • lush, green growth over the drainfield,
  • slow draining toilets or drains,

We are carrying a septic system inspection today for a customer in Biddeford, Maine who wants to know that their system is operating correctly. We have other septic system inspections today for customers in Cape Elizabeth, Arundel, Old Orchard Beach, Kennebunk Port, Kennebunk and Alfred Maine. If you require a septic inspection, for any reason, or if you have a concern about your septic system please do contact hesitate to contact us on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Maine’s Only Contractor Able To Provide Statewide OBD Services

Septic Preservation Services have OBD services scheduled today in Kittery, Kittery Point, Wells, Kennebunk, Old Orchard Beach and Cape Elizabeth ME. The Maine DEP’s Overboard Discharge (OBD) Program is responsible for regulating discharges of sanitary and household wastewater generated at residential or commercial locations to streams, rivers, bays, and the ocean. All OBDs must be approved by the DEP through a licensing process. DEP rule requires all mechanical OBD treatment systems to have an operating alarm system; to maintain a current service contract with a licensed service contractor; and to attach a service tag on or near the treatment system that provides the service contractor’s name and the last date of service. All mechanical systems require power, so be sure that power is supplied to the unit and that it is turned on 7 days a week during the season of use. Septic Preservation Services are the only statewide contractor on the OBD service contractor list supplied by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. If you need to arrange an overboard discharge (OBD) service or repair please do contact our office on 877 378 4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

We Can Provide OBD Services and OBD Repairs Statewide in Maine

Septic Preservation Services is the only statewide contractor on the Wastewater Treatment Plants Certified Maintenance Contractors list provided by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. This means that we are the only contractor statewide that can provide mechanical OBD Services. As stated on the Maine Department of Environmental Protection website:

“An overboard discharge (OBD) is a discharge to surface waters of the State of domestic pollutants (sanitary wastes or wastewater from household activities generated at residential or commercial locations) that are not conveyed to municipal or quasi-municipal sewerage treatment facilities. The vast majority of OBDs in Maine are associated with residential dwellings and small commercial operations along the coast.”
