Based on advice from our geotechnical engineers, and in an effort to protect the river valley’s ecosystem, Sarilia uses a septic and cistern system similar to that used on an acreage or cottage at the lake. We have our own service providers for both water and septic. The fee for services varies on usage and family size. If you’re building new, we recommend installing a greywater system as an affordable way to conserve water.
