Clean Water Tip
Travel Trailer Waste Disposal:
Now that camping season is nearly over, remember to properly dispose of your black water tank waste at a designated RV sanitary dump station. Improper disposal of waste contaminates the ground and water and leaves the “great outdoors” – not so great!
What you can do
Maintain septic systems as improperly working septic systems can pollute both surface water and groundwater. If you have a septic system, have it checked and pumped every few years to ensure it is working properly. More: https://www.calhouncountymi.gov/government/health_department/onsite_septic_program/
