Alaska Septic System

Alaska Septic System

While approximately 1 in 4 homes are on septic systems in the lower 48, the ratio is a bit higher in the land of the midnight sun. With vast territories and natural resources abound, the great state of Alaska is very serious about maintaining them with respect, groundwater management notwithstanding.

Called On-Site Disposal Systems in Alaska, a well built and adequately maintained alaska septic system can last 20 years or more. Contractors must take care to only use materials which expand and contract well with extreme weather and temperature changes.

Check the following link for Alaska's online informational site concerning care and maintenance:
