A free septic system workshop will be offered on Thursday, October 14, between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. EDT. It is a “stopping off, visiting and watching” event that is offered on a building site. A “chamber” type septic system is installed. Participants can stop by for 15 minutes or the full 2 hours to watch construction and learn more about how wastewater treatment plants work. Everyone is welcome.
Installation and maintenance of the wastewater treatment plant are discussed and experts are available to answer questions.
The Septic System Workshop will be held in the City of Haysville, 7250 N. Park Drive, Jasper IN 47546. The location is north of Haysville Park. GETTING THERE: Take US 231 to Haysville, opposite the intersection of US 231 and State Road. 56 in Haysville, turn west on Haysville Park Street. Go past the park, then turn west on Park Drive and the construction site will be on the right.
This educational event is offered by the Lower East Fork White Watershed 319 Grant Project, which focuses on water quality. The county’s local soil and water protection districts are sponsors of this grant project, which is also supported by the Dubois County Health Department.
The event will be postponed in the event of bad weather, which does not allow the installation of the sewage treatment plant.
