IAPMO Signs SepticSmart Proclamation

EPA’s SepticSmart Week will take place September 20-24, 2021. This event focuses on educating homeowners and communities on the proper care and maintenance of their septic systems. With over one in five households in the U.S. using septic systems, it’s important to learn how homeowners can save money, protect their health, and preserve the environment by following EPA’s SepticSmart Week tips and advice.

As a long-time supporter of the goals of the U.S. EPA’s SepticSmart Week, IAPMO CEO Dave Viola signed the following proclamation:

WHEREAS, proper septic system use and routine care are vital to protecting public health, preserving our highly valued groundwater, lakes, streams and waterways, and avoiding costly repairs that can result from neglect; and

WHEREAS, more than one in five households depend on septic systems to treat wastewater from homes and businesses; and

WHEREAS, wastewater professionals of The IAPMO Group use their expertise in the design, installation, maintenance, research, outreach and/or regulation of septic systems in the U.S.; and

WHEREAS, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SepticSmart program used by The IAPMO Group does educate homeowners about the need for proper septic system use and routine maintenance; and

WHEREAS, homeowners and the environment benefit from properly designed, installed, operated, and maintained septic systems;

NOW THEREFORE, I (We) Dave Viola, CEO of the The IAPMO Group do hereby proclaim the week of September 20-24, 2021 as

SepticSmart Week

and I (we) urge all people to join me (us) in this special observance. Signed this August 16, 2021
