Thus, assuring that wastewater treatment systems are not placed in locations that could contaminate drinking water supplies, and that wastewater is not surfacing upon the ground within Jefferson County are important steps in protecting the drinking water resources of the county.
Property owners with concern that their current wastewater system is not working properly or managing the volume of wastewater generated should contact the Jefferson County Health Department at (785) 863-2447 to request a wastewater system consultation. Based on those findings, appropriate repairs can be made when indicated.
