MSU Extension offers free septic system workshop Macomb

Macomb County Michigan State University Extension (MSUE), in partnership with the Macomb County Health Department, is holding a free septic system use and maintenance workshop in Ray Township.

The seminar will be held Wednesday, December 12 from 6:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Ray Township office, 64255 Wolcott, Ray Township, 48096. Check in begins at 6 p.m.

Topics covered during the seminar include how a septic system functions, septic system maintenance, how to detect septic system failure, water conservation and well construction and maintenance. Handouts, including the Home*A*Syst (Home Assessment System) book, will be available.

A faulty septic system can threaten a family's health as well as harm pets and wildlife, contaminate groundwater and lower property values. Protecting and maintaining a household water system is as simple as following a few guidelines.
