Septic Sense workshop offered in Bremerton on May 12
Maintaining your septic system will save money and keep pollution out of our local waterways

(Port Orchard, WA) - Kitsap County residents are invited to another free workshop to learn how to keep their septic systems working well and lasting longer. Well maintained septic systems will save homeowners money and keep bacteria and nutrients out of local creeks, lakes, and Puget Sound.

The workshop will be held:
May 12, 2015
Green Mountain Elementary
3860 Boundary Trail NW, Bremerton

This free event runs from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and will include information about: • How septic systems work
• 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
• Attendees will also receive a free “green” cleaning kit (one per household)
• Refreshments provided

“Just like maintaining your house, e.g., the roof, the furnace, or a coat of paint, your septic system also needs to be maintained” says Eva Crim, Kitsap Public Health District (KPHD). “We can help you by providing information on what you can do to take care of your septic system investment.”

Registration is required and space is limited. Register today at: http://septicsense.bpt.me or call 360.337.7157 ext. 3244.

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 www.cleanwaterkitsap.org.
