Septic waste systems are likely, one of the least acknowledged technological innovations used daily but rarely considered. Without this invention, our natural environment in Maine would be significantly more polluted with human and household waste. Long before there were septic systems waste simply drained into our neighborhood water supply.

An outhouse was the most common option of the day, most often located over a dug hole in the earth where human waste was collected. When the pit is filled, then the outhouse is simply moved over top of a new hole. Septic systems offer huge advantages way beyond this method.

The First Septic Tank The invention of the septic system is attributed to a man by the name of John (Jean) Mouras. Mouras crafted together a basic system in 1860, in the yard of his home in France. With clay pipes, he ferried the waste from the bathroom in the house to the tank in the yard. When 10 years had passed, the tank was opened and it was discovered that only liquid remained. There was little, if any solid matter. After discussing his findings with scientists he patented his septic system in 1881. By 1883, septic systems had made their way to the US and after WWll the innovation took off.

Modern Day Concerns in Maine

In those days, there were few if any, governing by-laws with regard to how septic waste systems were built or maintained. It wasnt until the 1970s that the governments and municipalities started to address and enact legislation in Maine ensuring at least minimum standards were met.

While septic systems were a major innovation of the era, people are concerned about environmental impacts of some of the now old systems in Maine. When septic systems fail, the result can be unhealthy waste leaking into local city food and water supplies. Because of this serious and real possibility, which has lead to an abundance of by-laws and regulations regarding the qualified installation and maintenance of septic systems by local governing bodies. It's interesting to note that septic only causes problems when not functioning well. In a great number of cases, septic system failures are related to to improper or lack of maintenance.
