Tuesday, June 12, 2012 – Be part of the hottest party trend and join Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) on Saturday June 16, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. for its first Well & Septic Social.
This is a free event, as part of CVC’s Countryside Stewardship Workshop Series, for rural landowners to learn more about the importance of properly maintaining their wells and septic systems to protect human health and the health of the rural countryside.
Don and Joanne Chambers, two of CVC’s countryside stewardship champions, will host the Well & Septic Social at their home at 5969 9th Line, in Erin. At the event participants will:
- Observe a septic system pump-out and learn how to identify warning signs of a failing system
- Learn components of a properly maintained well and how they can protect drinking water quality
- Learn how to maintain their own wells and septic systems (and what not to do)
- Learn about current Ontario Building Code regulations and recommended system upgrades.
There will be lots of time to ask our experts questions, share stories with other landowners and enjoy the fresh air. Bring a lawn chair and dress for the weather since 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 email http://www.creditvalleyca.ca/event/well-and-septic-social.
Conservation Authorities are a provincial/municipal partnership. CVC was established by an act of the province in 1954 with a mandate to protect all natural resources other than minerals in the area drained by the Credit River. We have been working for more than 50 years with our partner municipalities and stakeholders to protect and enhance the natural environment of the Credit River Watershed for present and future generations.
