Above and beyond. MPCA recognizes Douglas County for innovation in septic system maintenance record keeping.
Suppose you’re a septic system maintainer in, let’s say Douglas County for example, and you’re looking for a better way to manage your record keeping and reporting. Believe it or not…there’s an App for that!
Thanks to Douglas County officials and area septic maintainers working together, the county has developed a computer-based, user-friendly application that makes it easy to record land application sites and daily hauling information using Microsoft Access.
The tool was developed based on federal regulations, and allows users to import daily records and quickly view yearly disposal records instead of having to wait for hard-copy reports. The system also helps maintainers calculate vital information like maximum allowed nitrogen, or total gallons of sewage that can be applied to a given land application site.

For partnering with septic maintainers to help simplify their ability to properly haul and land apply sewage, the MPCA thanks Douglas County for improved septic system maintenance record keeping.
