Find out at a Septic Sense Workshop! Register here.

Learn how to protect your investment and keep it happy for a lifetime of service. Well maintained septic systems will save homeowners money and keep bacteria and nutrients out of local creeks, lakes, and Puget Sound.

Kitsap County residents who own a septic system are welcome to attend a FREE workshop that will include information about:

  • How septic systems work
  • The 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
  • How to safely landscape your septic drainfield
  • Info about low-interest loan progams for septic system repairs

We will provide refreshments and free green cleaning kits (pictured, one per household).
