Private Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems
7/21/2014 4:00:00 PM - Planning


The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe (SCIT) in conjunction with Indian Health Services (IHS) is seeking tribal members to inventory their Private Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems (POWTS) Project. Phase 1 is just an inventory, pumping and inspection of the POWTS systems and once all data is gathered, the repairs will be completed as a subsequent Phase 2 known as the POWTS Repair Project.

The Tribe and the IHS are encouraging tribal members to participate in the Project as a benefit to the tribal member homeowners. We will be conducting an inventory of private onsite wastewater treatment systems for Tribal member homes throughout the Isabella Reservation, Clare, Arenac, Midland and Isabella Counties in Michigan.  

Septic systems will be pumped and inspected a no expense to the homeowner by licensed and certified pumpers and inspectors. Homeowners must be willing to allow pumpers and inspectors on site for this work. This work will be scheduled with the homeowners.
