What do these things have in common?

Find out at a Septic System Virtual Workshop!

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

Kitsap County residents with a septic system are welcome to attend a FREE webinar that will cover topics such as:

  • 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

Registration and 2024 dates coming soon!

Workshops are sponsored by Clean Water Kitsap, a multi-agency partnership working to reduce flooding, prevent pollution, and restore fish habitat. To learn more about what we are doing to keep water clean and what you can do to help, explore the Clean Water Kitsap website.
