MSU Ext. Hosts Septic and Well Use and Maintenance Webinar


One unintended consequence of the stay home/stay safe order is septic system issues. In the past, many homes were empty for 8-10 hours each weekday while homeowners were at work, school and other activities.  Today with families staying home 24/7, more hand washing, more food preparation and more toilets flushing is causing more stress on septic systems.  More septic system issues – back ups, overflows, etc. – are occurring .

MSU Extension in partnership with the Macomb County Environmental Health Division is holding a free educational webinar, “Septic Systems 101 During Stay at Home” on Tuesday, May 5, 2019 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM.  The webinar will focus on septic system use, maintenance and troubleshooting your system followed by a real time question and answer portion.
