Today’s technology is greatly improving. I believe that we have found out more about septic systems in the last 5 years than we have in the previous 40 years. EPA concluded in its 1997 Report to Congress that "adequately managed decentralized wastewater systems are a cost-effective and long-term option for meeting public health and water quality goals, particularly in less densely populated areas."
Typically if a system is:
- Tested for properly,
- Designed adequately,
- Installed properly,
- Used properly and,
- Maintained properly,
It should last indefinitely!
