East Mountain Septic Pumping opened under new ownership in August. “The previous owners went out of business and it reverted back to the original owner who was planning on shutting it down, but we didn’t want to see the longstanding business with a great reputation go way. So we stepped up and took on the company too continue to serve the East Mountains,” said owner Mike Butler.

The Butlers have a small family-owned operation in Edgewood. Mike Butler is the owner and handles day to day operations, Jennifer Butler is Head of Administration and Amy Butler is the Office Manager. The company does not have a brick and mortar office the public can visit but they operate from Edgewood.

They offer many septic services including pumping septic tanks, septic inspections and property transfers, septic installation, maintenance agreements, repairs, onsite consultation, tank locating and troubleshooting.

The price range of services vary depending on what the customer needs. For basic service, things like cleaning filters, alarms going off, etc. they charge $75 plus tax, with additional charges if they do any replacements.

Pumping is $279 plus tax as long as it’s under 1,250 gallons and in the service area. They charge additional fees for digging up lids, fuel charge out of area service, and gallon overage. The most expensive service they offer is septic installations. The prices vary on location, size of the tank and other variables such as rock or underground utilities. They also offer free on-site consultation to get a quote before an installation.

The service area encompasses most of the East Mountains and Estancia Valley.

East Mountain Septic Pumping is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. They are also on Facebook. They can be reached at 505-281-3513.

“With over 20 years of experience we are familiar and knowledgeable with the septic systems and unique conditions that exist here in the East mountain area. We are mountain people serving mountain people,” said Mike Butler.
