  1. 100% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 3: Household Wastewater Treatment System [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Nearly one-third of Pennsylvania residents rely on private household waste treatment systems. Maintenance of these systems is the responsibility of the home owner. Up to 50% of the solids retained in a septic system decompose while the remainder accumulate in the tank. Septic tanks need to be pumped every 3 to 5 years to prevent the solids from escaping the tank and clogging drain-fields. The frequency of the pumping depends on the size of the septic tank and the number of people it serves."

  4. 64% Environmental Soil Issues: Lead in Residential Soils: Sources, Testing, and Reducing Exposure [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Lead occurs naturally in soils, typically at concentrations that range from 10 to 50 mg/kg (milligrams of lead per kilogram of soil, equivalent to parts of lead per million parts of soil, or ppm). Because of the widespread use of leaded paint before the mid-1970s and leaded gasoline before the mid-1980s, as well as contamination from various industrial sources, urban soils often have lead concentrations much greater than normal background levels. These concentrations frequently range from 150 mg/kg to as high as 10,000 mg/kg at the base of a home painted with lead-based paint. Lead does not biodegrade, or disappear over time, but remains in soils for thousands of years."
