Description Our regional offices take samples to find problem areas within watersheds. Septic systems that do not work properly are one of the sources. Finding these septic systems usually needs the cooperation of homeowners, dye testing, and sophisticated methods like thermal infrared photography. In this case, we found the system with inexpensive sampling methods.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
