Septic Tank Effluent Pump (S.T.E.P)
Sewer System

Current on-site septics, new or old, send untreated waste water into groundwater, potentially contaminating well water we drink and adding nutrients to Higgins Lake.

The  S.T.E.P system uses a watertight tank; Rainwater does not enter the tank.  Only effuent is pumped (avg 2 times a day) to the waste water treatment plant.  Discharged treated water meets drinking water standards, keeping our wells safe and Higgins Lake Healthy.   Pumped solids are treated at the waste water treatment plant.
