How do I dispose my softener brine environmentally safe?

We currently have a softener system that releases the salt brine into our septic tank. Salt and bacteria are not friends :eek: so, where would you recommend we drain the brine? I would believe expelling it into our ditch would be just as bad!! Is there a better solution? :confused: Thank you very much!!

That's one reason I use a potassium based product in my softener rather than salt. I use "Natures Own".
