4th Annual Hydrogeology Consortium Workshop

Septic Systems Discussion Session

Brian Crawford - Wakulla County Health Department - Notes from Presentation

  • There are approximately 2646 septic tanks in the springshed. This includes the entire area between the Wakulla and St. Marks Rivers, the north central and north western portions of the county.
  • They range in age from a few days old to over 50 years old.
  • The newer systems meet the current standards of the Septic Tank Code, whereas the older systems probably do not.
  • The majority of the growth in Wakulla County is in the Crawfordville Area. Very few homes/business are being constructed utilizing Septic Tanks in the springshed; they are being developed using central sewerage.
