Can my failing septic system contaminate the water?

Yes, a failing septic system can contaminate well water and nearby bodies of water. Untreated wastewater is a health hazard and can cause diseases. If untreated wastewater enters the groundwater, you and your neighbor's wells can be contaminated. If the sewage reaches nearby streams or bodies of water, shellfish beds and recreational swimming areas can be contaminated.
