The Poo Code
March 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Shiawassee County residents are invited to learn how to a septic system works and what happens when it doesn’t, about the Shiawassee County Sanitary Code, and the Shiawassee Conservation District’s Septic System Assistance Program. As watersheds know no county lines, hear about watershed planning and implementation efforts made by the Clinton Conservation District in Clinton County.
Everyone who attends will have the opportunity to have their well drinking water screened for nitrates and nitrites during the workshop.
Tips on collecting your water sample:
- Pick a tap that does not run through any treatment devices
- Run water 15-20 minutes before collecting sample
- Three ounces is adequate
- Keep sample dark and cold
There is no cost to attend this workshop.
The Septic System Assistance Program is a part of a larger effort by the Shiawassee Conservation District to address nonpoint source pollution in the Maple River Watershed. Funding for this program comes from a Conservation District grant from the Michigan DEQ Environmental Quality’s Nonpoint Source Program by the U.S. EPA.
