Private sewage systems are a very important piece of infrastructure that requires regular maintenance. Too often homeowners install sewage systems and once in the ground forget about them. Think of your sewage system as a miniature wastewater treatment plant that requires specialized knowledge and ongoing maintenance.

A malfunctioning or failing sewage system can have harmful impacts on public health and on local groundwater and surface water resources. If you suspect your sewage system or someone else’s sewage system is failing please pump out your septic tank and call the Township of Wainfleet for more information at (905) 899-3463.

Please see the links below for more information on your sewage system.
