Onsite Wastewater Treatment and Reuse

Welcome to the Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems website for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service!  Our mission is to provide information on the technologies available for managing wastewater so people can make informed decisions when selecting, operating, and maintaining their onsite wastewater treatment system.

This website is full of information about onsite wastewater treatment systems (including conventional septic systems and advanced systems), operation and maintenance requirements, and upcoming programs.

Septic Smart Week is September 14- 18, 2020.  This annual event educates septic system owners on the care and maintenance of their systems.
EPA has a Septic Systems Outreach Toolkit containing downloadable and/or printable materials targeted to homeowners for use in homeowner education programs.
The materials include Septic Week Quick Tip Videos, proclamations, and a variety of downloadable, printable flyers and posters.
