Septic Sense workshop offered on January 22

Maintaining your septic system will save money and keep pollution out of our local waterways

(Port Orchard, WA) - Kitsap County residents are invited to a free workshop to learn how to keep their septic systems working well and lasting longer. Well maintained septic systems will save homeowners money and keep bacteria and nutrients out of local creeks, lakes, and Puget Sound. The workshop will be held:

January 22, 2014, 6 to 8 p.m.
Eagle’s Nest
1195 NW Fairgrounds Road, Bremerton

This free event runs 6 to 8 p.m. and includes information about:

  • How septic systems work
  • Best ways to care for them
  • How to detect if a system is failing and what to do next
  • Low interest loan programs for septic repairs
  • Local water quality improvement projects
  • Attendees also receive free “green” cleaning products, water conservation fixtures, a sink strainer, and a coupon for 10 free trees or shrubs from the Kitsap Conservation District
  • Refreshments are provided

“Just like you should maintain your car so it runs well and lasts longer, you need to maintain your septic system,” says Shawn Ultican, Kitsap Public Health District (KPHD). “A failing septic system can cost thousands of dollars to repair and can be a serious health risk to your family and the environment.”

Space is limited. Register today at: or call 360.337.7157 extension 3244

This workshop is funded by a Centennial Clean Water Fund grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology, and the Kitsap County Surface and Stormwater Management Program.
