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.

Home aerobic treatment systems maintenance course available online starting April 1 (no kidding)! Click here to for details on enrollment in the program.

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.
