“Well & Septic System Maintenance and Septic Self -Inspection Certification”

Online Zoom Webinar
Clark County, WA – Do you have a gravity-fed septic system? Did you know Clark County requires you to have your gravity-fed septic system inspected every 3 years? Coming up July 21st, you can join an online webinar that will allow you to inspect the system yourself instead of hiring a professional to do it for you. The workshop is taught by Clark County Public Health and will teach participants how to inspect their septic systems and safely maintain their well water. Completing the workshop and a short exam will certify participants to self-inspect their own septic system every other time.
Having your septic system inspected by a professional, costs around $100. You can save money by getting certified to self-inspect your system in our class which costs $17.55, saving homeowners money. “Getting certified is also a good long-term investment and participants will learn how to spot problems faster so they can have them fixed rather than looking at a costly system replacement”, says Terry Koper, Small Acreage Program Coordinator.
The Small Acreage Program, co-sponsored by Washington State University Clark County Extension and Clark County Public Works Clean Water, will provide information, handouts, and answer landowners’ questions at the workshop.
WSU Extension programs and employment are available to all without discrimination. Persons requiring special accommodations should call WSU Clark County Extension at (564) 397-5729 at least two weeks prior to the event.
