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

(Port Orchard, WA)  Kitsap County residents are invited to this free workshop to learn how to keep their septic system 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:

June 21, 2016
Indianola Beach Improvement Club
19876 Indianola Rd NE, Indianola, WA 98342

This free event runs from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The workshop will 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

“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.
