Originally, “The grass was always greener on the other sider of the fence” implying life was better at your neighbour’s!

But it is spring and the saying out in the country is, “The grass is always greener over the septic bed!”


Many properties have a septic bed – a private sewage treatment system, commonly found in rural areas where there aren’t any municipal sewage systems available. Bethany Village is one of these areas.

A properly designed, built and maintained system can reduce or eliminate most human health or environmental threats posed by pollutants in household wastewater.

There are many different types of septic systems designed to fit a wide range of soil and site conditions:

  • A standard septic tank system has a septic tank, drain field and soil.
  • Gravity drain fields work by allowing gravity to drain sewage from the tank into the trenches.
  • Pressure distribution systems are installed when there is less than optimal soil depth, requiring a pump to work.
  • Other systems utilized include sand filters, used when there is minimal soil available, or a mound system used when there is inadequate soil depth.
