Septic System Workshop Planned

A well and septic system workshop for homeowners, farmers and realtors will be held April 23 at the Fulton Theatre.

This workshop will answer "how to" questions: How to prevent well contamination, conserve water, get rid of odors from water, keep your septic system working, and determine if the well will keep up during drought.

Penn State extension educators George Hurd (Franklin Co.) and Tom McCarty (Cumberland Co.) will conduct the workshop using models, video clips and materials. The workshop will be held from 10:00 a.m. to noon. There is no cost to attend.

The workshop will provide some basic information helpful for everyone responsible for their own well and septic system. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss common well problems and how to address them, what kind of water testing is needed and how to respond to the results, to describe the parts of a septic system, what each part does, and how to insure all the parts keep on working. Register or call for more information at 485-4111.
