Learn how proper septic care can save households money

Proper septic system operation and maintenance can save homeowners money while protecting the environment. With proper maintenance septic systems can effectively treat wastewater for 20, 30, or more years. Improper maintenance can lead to system failure and the need for expensive repairs in 10 years or less.

Attend a free Septic System Care (Septic System Homeowner Operation and Maintenance Education, HOME) class on the evening of Tuesday, July 9, to learn more about the proper treatment of human wastewater. The one and one-half hour class begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be held at the Ideal Township Hall, 35458 Butternut Point Rd, Ideal Township, MN.

The workshop is offered through the University of Minnesota Extension Watershed Education Program and is sponsored by Whitefish Area Property Owners Association and Ideal Township. For more information contact Eleanor Burkett, University of Minnesota Extension at (218)828-2326, <> .
