Who has a septic system?
More than one third of the residents in Scott County use some form of sewage treatment method other than a municipal or city sewer system. This “other method” of treatment is called an Onsite (or sometimes subsurface) Sewage Treatment System (or SSTS). If designed and installed properly, an SSTS can be a cost effective and environmentally safe method of treating wastewater generated within the home.
