Join Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) on Saturday, June 15, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for their second annual Well & Septic Social in Orangeville.

This is a free event for rural landowners living in the Credit River Watershed. Landowners can learn more about properly maintaining their wells and septic systems to protect human health and the health of the countryside.

Countryside stewardship champion Karen Morrison will host the Well and Septic Social at5 Dodds Court, Orangeville (just north of Orangeville mall). At the event participants will:

  • Observe a septic system pump-out and learn how to identify warning signs of a failing system
  • Learn about the components of a properly maintained well and how to protect drinking water quality
  • Learn how to maintain wells and septic systems (and what not to do)
  • Learn about current Ontario building court regulations and recommended system upgrades.

There will be time to ask CVC experts questions, share stories with other landowners and enjoy the fresh air. Bring a lawn chair, your own mug and dress for the weather. This is an outdoor event that will take place rain or shine. To get on the guest list, call 1-800-668-5557 ext. 436 or visit www.creditvalleyca.ca/events by June 12.
