Septic system workshop planned


“Your Septic System: What Every Homeowner Needs to Know,” will be the subject of a free workshop on Friday May 9 at 2 p.m. at the Pine Hill Community Center at 287 Main Street, Pine Hill.

This two-hour class is presented by Catskill Watershed Corporation’s technical staff members.  It will cover the basics of wastewater treatment, various types of septic systems, and health and environmental effects that can result from failed systems.  

Covered also will be the roles and responsibilities of homeowners, regulators, engineers and contractors, as well as regular maintenance techniques which can extend the life of newer systems and help owners of older systems avoid costly repair or replacement projects.
