Almost one million homes in Ohio are beyond the reach of public sewage treatment.
If you live in one of those homes, are considering buying such a home, or will be building in an area without access to public sewage treatment, you may benefit by attending the Soils & Your Home Sewage Treatment System workshop, sponsored by the Delaware General Health District and the Delaware Soil and Water Conservation District.
This free workshop will be held June 8, 2017, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Brown Township Hall, 3832 Main Street in Kilbourne.
Staff from both agencies will cover soil properties, soil limitations, and mitigation; local soil surveys; different home sewage treatment systems in Delaware County; how to maintain a healthy home treatment system; and corrective actions and warning signs of a failing system.
The workshop is free but reservations are requested. Call 740-368-1921 or email by June 6.
