Servicing Statesville, Mooresville & surrounding areas since 2000

We are Lentz Wastewater Management, Inc. For more than three generations, the Lentz family name has been synonymous with quality septic service.

In 1958, Roy Lentz Sr. began installing septic systems, in 1972, his sons, Roy Jr. and Keith, founded Lentz Septic Tank Service and began offering septic tank pumping, and in 2000, his grandson, Jarrid, launched Lentz Wastewater Management, Inc.

Jarrid always knew he wanted to pursue the family business. As a boy, he rode along in the truck with his dad and granddad. They let him help with septic work on the family farm. The Lentz men taught him everything he needed to know to be successful in the septic business. This ranged from the biology, chemistry and physics of how septic systems work, to logic and business concepts. They taught him a common-sense approach to problem solving, a commitment to providing exceptional customer service and a willingness to help when you’re needed … which may not be on a 9-5, Monday through Friday schedule.

At the age of 24, Jarrid spotted an opportunity that could save customers time and money, a patented system capable of repairing the number one septic issue in a matter of hours rather than days—The Terralift. He purchased the system and launched his own addition to the family business. Building on the reputation of the Lentz name, be brought a needed solution to the area. Young and boot-strapped, he did almost all the work himself in the early days, but as his business grew so did his team.

Today, Jarrid, and his wife, Jeanie, consider it a privilege to continue the family tradition, serving friends and neighbors with the integrity, quality and reliability the Lentz family name has become known for.

Lentz Wastewater Management, Inc. has served families and businesses in the Greater Piedmont area for more than two decades now providing septic tank installation, maintenance, repair and replacement, along with drain field solutions, including Terralift rejuvenation.
