Thank you for choosing Northland. 


This is the septic maintenance people you want. These men are highly trained and knowledgeable in every aspect of taking care of our sewer systems. We had our sewer pumped by Lee a few weeks ago, and I didn’t think there was a more courteous, super-hard-working person out there yet. Also knowledgeable about every aspect of sewers. He worked so hard on our sewer [at] my folk’s place before they passed on, and [I] don’t think it ever got pumped. It was scary to see it so full of hard sludge and that had to be broke down to get the job done; with every care, Lee got the job done. We sure can appreciate a person that goes the extra mile and got the job done the right way!! Thanks, Lee and Northland for having a hard-working group of people working for you!!! We now have a permanent company to take care of our sewer. Thanks again!!
