PREBLE COUNTY — Even though septic systems play such a vital role in the day-to-day lives of those who live in the country, many rural homeowners would still put their septic system way far down on the list of things to worry about. That is, until their toilet or washer drain backs up. Then their septic system becomes the first thing to be concerned about. Join the Preble Soil and Water Conservation District and Preble County Farm Bureau for a Homeowners Septic System Workshop to learn how to go from a bare lot or malfunctioning system to a functioning septic system.
Dr. Karen Mancl from The Ohio State University will address how to plan for and maintain rural septic systems. Matt Deaton of Deaton Soil Services, LLC will speak on soil evaluation, the local permitting process, and the final design of a system. To round out the workshop, the Preble Soil and Water Conservation District will cover the services that the District has to offer to rural homeowners.
This workshop is intended for homeowners with existing septic systems or those who are considering new systems, in addition to realtors, land surveyors, home builders, contractors, and more. All of the presenters have many years of experience in this field and will be more than glad to handle questions that come up at the workshop.
The workshop will be held Monday, Oct. 25 from 6-8 p.m. at Grace Lutheran Church, 111 Lutheran Dr., Eaton. Please make a reservation by calling Preble SWCD at 937-456-5159.
