Snohomish County is home to spectacular marine shorelines, lakes, rivers, and streams that provide recreation, wildlife habitat, food, and natural beauty unique to the Pacific Northwest. Maintaining healthy septic systems is critical for clean water and to protect the health of our aquatic ecosystems, the health and safety of county residents, and the value of your home.
Approximately 75% of Snohomish County's septic systems are 25 years old or older, and many are near bodies of water. By maintaining a clean and healthy septic system, you are helping keep pollution out of the environment and investing in clean water for your family and your community.
