MAR Septic System Brochures

MAR Septic System Brochures now available

In cooperation with Michigan State University Extension, MAR is now offering members the opportunity to distribute free Managing Your Septic System educational brochures.

This program is designed to educate buyers at time of closing about the necessity of properly maintaining and caring for their septic system to avoid costly future repairs, system replacement, and damage to the environment. The four page brochure carefully explains how a septic tank and drainfield work, recommendations to prolong the life of the system, and space for recording maintenance history.
