April 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am - December 31, 2023 @ 11:30 pm


In this online course, we will be discussing information that is important to you, the homeowner, for performing proper operation, maintenance, and monitoring service of your onsite wastewater treatment system, also called an Aerobic Treatment Unit (ATU) and Spray System.

We will also discuss the routine reporting requirements for keeping your ATU & Spray System in compliance with Texas regulations at the state and local level.

For Texas counties that have approved this course, it will allow homeowners to maintain their own Aerobic Treatment Unit. To determine if your county is eligible, contact your local regulatory authority.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the basic operation and maintenance activities for an ATU
  • Be a better consumer in the onsite wastewater treatment industry
  • Have the knowledge needed to develop a professional relationship with your maintenance providers.

You will have 30 days to complete this course.
