Where Does the Water Go?
Do you know where the water goes when you empty a sink or flush a toilet? If you home is in a city, the wastewater likely goes into a municipal sanitary system to a sewage treatment plant. If your home is located in a rural area or a small community, you are likely one of the 25 per cent of Canadians whose wastewater is treated by a septic system (also referred to as on onsite wastewater system). A septic system treats your sewage right in your own yard and releases the treated effluent back into the groundwater.
