Septic Tank to Cistern Conversion Option
One of the benefits of connecting to the Central Wastewater System is the opportunity it provides to convert your septic tank into a cistern. For slightly more than the cost of septic tank abandonment you can utilize your tank to capture rainwater for use in landscape watering, car washing, boat washing, motor flushing, and pressure washing.
