If your house has a stream discharge system that removes treated wastewater from the property, you need to have a licensed contractor regularly maintain the system. Tri-County Water Services has been serving homeowners across Pennsylvania for more than 20 years, and we’re one of the state’s leading stream discharge system maintenance companies.
How a Stream Discharge System Works
Wastewater from a house goes through a process that can include filtration, disinfection, aerobic treatment, and other steps. Once wastewater has completed the treatment process, it travels through a pipe and is discharged directly into a waterway, a ditch, or another location.
Why a Stream Discharge System Has to Be Carefully Maintained
Water that’s discharged must meet safety requirements to avoid contaminating the environment and to keep people and animals from becoming ill. A homeowner needs a permit to operate a stream discharge system and must meet strict maintenance and reporting requirements to ensure that the wastewater it releases is safe.
If you own a property with a stream discharge system, you’re required to have the system regularly inspected and maintained, have water samples analyzed, and have the results reported to the Department of Environmental Protection. A stream discharge system has multiple components, and each has its own individual maintenance requirements that must be met. This is why it’s essential to work with a qualified contractor.
