May 19 – A workshop entitled “All About Septic Systems” will be held Thursday, May 26 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Haywood County Agricultural Service Center, hosted by the Haywood Waterways Association and Haywood County Environmental Health Department.
Learn everything there is to know about septic systems – how they work, what the most common problems are, what the solutions are, and what financial help is available for homeowners struggling.
Sewage systems require maintenance for proper treatment of effluent from toilets, washing machines, dishwashers and showers. Failure to do so can result in outages, and if the system is located near a river, creek or lake, untreated wastewater can enter the waterway and pose risks to human health and the environment.
Maintaining septic systems can add years to their lifespan. The average cost to repair a failed sewage system can be as high as $5,400.
Located at 589 Raccoon Road, Waynesville. RSVP Christine O’Brien at 828-476-4667 ext. 11 or [email protected]
