Many Properties In Maine Are Serviced By Septic Systems

Septic Preservation Services know that many properties in Maine are serviced by septic systems because they are not on town sewer. As you would expect many of these properties are in remote areas of the state where the closest ‘town’ is not that close at all. However what is perhaps surprising are the number of properties that are not remotely located but are also on a septic system to process their waste. Septic systems provide simple, effective onsite wastewater treatment. They allow groundwater to be recharged onsite making more clean water available for use and treat the effluent naturally and allow water to seep into the ground, which keeps moisture on site to help plants grow and replenish the water supply. If properly installed and maintained individual septic systems offer Maine property owners many environmental benefits in this beautiful state. However you do need to ensure that your septic system is maintained and is working correctly. If you are unsure if you system is working as it should or if you are selling or buying a property with a septic system it is usually a good idea to have a septic inspection to advise you of the current condition of the system and if there are any concerns. Today we have septic inspections scheduled in Richmond, Bowdoinham, Bowdoin, Topsham, Brunswick, Bath, Gardiner and Pittston Maine. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections or septic systems please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit

The Maine DEP’s Overboard Discharge (OBD) Program Is Responsible For Regulating Discharges Of Sanitary And Household Wastewater

Septic Preservation Services have many years experience working with the Maine government’s overboard discharge (OBD) program. As stated on the Maine Gov website:

“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.” For more information see:

Septic Preservation Services are the only statewide company on the certified maintenance contractor list provided by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.

In addition to having your OBD serviced and maintained by a certified contractor you can ensure that your OBD is maintained by following these tips that will help to extend the life of your OBD and promote high quality effluent.

  • Some household chemicals kill the microorganisms that digest the wastes in your treatment system and may pass through to the receiving waterbody. Toxic chemicals, harsh cleaners, paint, pharmaceuticals, and non-biodegradable materials should not be disposed of by dumping or pouring down the drain.
  • Using low-flow toilets and water-saving showerheads will prolong the life of your system.
  • Septic tanks should be pumped at least once every three years. Depending on how much the OBD facility is used, you may want to increase the septic pumping frequency or decrease it to once every five years if it receives very little use.
  • Trees, shrubs and woody perennials should be cleared away from system components. Sandfilter surfaces should be mowed at least once per year. If a wet spot appears on or near the sandfilter bed notify the DEP inspector.
  • Mechanical systems operate best if they are used at a consistent rate and may malfunction or produce poor quality effluent if overloaded on the weekend and “starved” during the week. Try to manage laundry, cleaning, and showers so that the load is spread out as evenly as possible. Leave a mechanical OBD operating as recommended by your service contractor at all times during the season of use.
  • Check the chlorine level at least every two weeks and keep fresh chlorine in contact with the treated wastewater. Don’t overfill the chlorinator tubes; only the bottom two or three inches of the tubes should have chlorine. Old, brown or mushy chlorine does not properly disinfect and must be replaced. Take care to remove old chlorine from your chlorinator rather than washing it out to the waterbody.
  • Ensure that the outfall pipe extends to below the low water mark of the receiving waterbody. In extenuating circumstances a specific waiver to this requirement may be granted by the Department.
  • Treated wastewater should be clear and without a strong septic or chlorine odor. If wastewater in the disinfection unit is not nearly clear, smells like rotten eggs, raw sewage, or smells strongly of chlorine, call your service contractor or notify the DEP inspector.

Today we have OBD maintenance and services scheduled in Westport Island, Bowdoinham, Brunswick, Bremen, Orr’s Island, Friendship and Owls Head Maine. If you have an OBD and require a service or you have a question or concern about your OBD please do contact our office on 877-378-4279 or visit
