Top four ways to protect your STEP system:
1. DO call the District at
(863) 655-0615 during office hours or for after hour emergencies, please call
734-777-0989 or 863-655-2562 if you hear or see the STEP system alarm go off.
2. DO let SLID personnel repair and
maintain the system. Don’t try to do it
3. DON’T use your system for garbage.
4. DON’T dispose of toxic or flammable material into your System. Be careful with undesirable substances that could be flushed into the sewer. Never flush dental floss, fats, oils, grease (FOG), feminine hygiene products, condoms, diapers, wipes, cotton swabs, cigarette butts, coffee grounds, cat litter, or other items that can clog and potentially damage your STEP system. These items should be disposed of in your garbage can. Flushing household chemicals, gasoline, oil, pesticides, antifreeze, and paint can stress or destroy the biological treatment taking place in the system. These items should be taken to the appropriate local hazardous materials handling or recycling station.
Call before you dig
The telephone number of the ‘One Call’ system is 1-800-432-4770. The utilities that have underground facilities in your area will come to surface mark their lines. This is the law!
Do not tamper with your tank
Do not attempt to enter your tank or remove the green access lid. The septic environment creates gases that can cause illness. If your lid has been removed or damaged, let us know and we will repair it in a timely manner.
