Septic Sense workshops offered at two location October 14 & 22
Maintaining your septic system saves money and keeps pollution out of our local waterways

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

October 14, 2014
Long Lake Bob Oke Community Room
5100 Long Lake Road SE, Port Orchard

October 22, 2014
The Greater Hansville Community Center
6778 NE Buck Lake Road, Hansville

This free event runs from 6-8 p.m. at both locations. The workshops include 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

  • Attendees will also receive a free “green” cleaning kit

  • Refreshments provided

“Just as you would maintain your car so it runs well and lasts longer, you need to maintain your septic system,” says Kerrie Crawford, 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.”

Registration is required and space is limited. Register today at: or call Kitsap1 at 360.337.5777.

Workshops are sponsored by Clean Water Kitsap, a multi-agency partnership working to reduce flooding, prevent pollution, and restore fish habitat. To learn more about what we are doing to keep water clean and what you can do to help, explore the Clean Water Kitsap website
