Minnesota Extension Service will sponsor a free workshop from 7 to 9 p.m. March 8 in Room E354 at Central Lakes College in Brainerd. The workshop will discuss how homeowners can properly care for and extend the life of their individual sewer treatment systems.
Improper design, construction, operation and maintenance of home septic systems can lead to elevated levels of fecal coliform bacteria and nitrates, which can end up in your water well system, according to the extension service.
How often to clean a sewer system, how to make it last longer, how to save money, how to prevent a system from freezing and how it works will be among the questions presenters will answer. Which type of detergents and how often to do laundry will be discussed, along with whether additives do or don't help keep a system working.
Anyone interested in attending must register at least one week in advance. To pre-register, call 888-241-4528 or e-mail email@example.com.
