Be septic savvy.
With proper operation and regular maintenance, your septic system will function better, last longer and protect the quality of groundwater. Committing a little attention to the care of your system will help you avoid costly repairs or replacement of your system.

What you can expect.
At a workshop you will learn how to understand, assess and manage your private septic system, enabling you to protect your investment and the environment. If you have a septic system on your rural property, you will benefit from attending a workshop.

World Water Day
Mar 22 all-day

Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.

Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.

This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.
