Septic Sense Workshop
 

Find out at a Septic Sense Workshop!

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

All participants will receive free zip-its, and will be in the running to win 1 of 5 green cleaning kits.

Details for the next Septic Sense workshops:
