April 20, 2015: Septic Systems Webinar - Insight into your Onsite System
Approximately 43% of Michigan residents rely on onsite wastewater (septic) systems to handle waste water from their homes and businesses. That's over 1.2 million septic systems in use in Michigan today and it's estimated that at least 10% of these are in some level of failure.
MSU Extension is hosting a live webinar, "Septic Systems: Insight Into Your Onsite System" on Monday, April 20 from 1:30-3:30 pm. This program will cover what a septic system is, how it works, best management practices to protect the system and human health, how to identify trouble in the system and steps to take if a problem occurs.
The live webinar will include presentations by the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Macomb County Health Department Sanitarian Supervisor with 29 years of septic and well experience. The presentations will be followed by a live question and answer session via the chat box.
To join this FREE webinar, you must pre-register at http://events.anr.msu.edu/septicinsight/ . You will receive a confirmation email upon registration and log in instruction at least 48 hours prior to the webinar.
Deadline to register is Friday, April 17, 2015.
