Septic-system reminders mailed to Smith Township homes

“There is no law that requires homeowners to get their septic tanks pumped,” said Matthew Stefanak, health commissioner. “But reminding homeowners to get their septic systems serviced regularly can save them thousands of dollars in repair costs.”
