It's alimentary. A failing septic system STINKS and is toxic to ground water and our waterways. Our recent video for the Sleepy Creek Watershed Association may not be elegant but the subject is critical to the health of our watersheds.

Don’t pass on this opportunity to address that nagging septic problem or simply get 50% off that much needed maintenance pump-out! Funds are sill available West Virginia Conservation Agency.

In our latest video, the West Virginia Conservation Agency presents a case study on the importance of proper septic maintenance and the environmental impacts associated with a failing septic system. The cost share program available to assist Sleepy Creek homeowners with septic pumping or repair needs is also explained.
Funding for this project was made possible by a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency's Chesapeake Bay Program
