Homes don’t come with an owner’s manual, but if you have a private well or septic system, you may wish that they did because you are responsible for maintaining their operations and providing safe drinking water to your family.

Whether you’ve grown up with private drinking water and waste disposal systems, or are new to these devices, there is a lot to learn about maintaining your equipment and ensuring safe drinking water.

The University of Maryland Extension’s Well Water and Septic Homeowner Education Project provides useful information and practical steps to help you maintain your systems, avoid costly repairs or replacements, and most importantly, protect the health and safety of your family.
