Spring can be a challenging time for septic leach fields. The melting winter snow and rainstorms add plenty of moisture to the ground. These extra wet conditions can cause leach fields to fail.

Why is My Leach Field Failing?

Your leach field is designed to hold the wastewater leaving your septic tank, so it is slowly absorbed into soil to be filtered. If the field overloads from excess liquid, it can flood, causing wastewater to flow to the ground surface.

Warning Signs Your Leach Field Could Be Failing:

  1. Drains are slow or producing bad smells
  2. Toilets are not flushing properly
  3. Patches of greener or denser grass or shrubs develop in yard
  4. Soggy soil pooling above the leach field
  5. Foul smell in septic field area
  6. Black/brackish water coming up through the ground downstream of your septic tank
