This is the fourth year the Association hosted Septic Sense webinars for homeowners to bring their attention to the importance of using Certified Contractors and to operate the maintain their septic systems properly. This initiative, which is held in conjunction with the USEPA Septic Smart Week, was started under the WCOWMA umbrella and since that time Ontario, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia have joined the four western provinces in hosting public education webinars during the week.
Over 225 people registered to attend the numerous workshops we hosted throughout the week. Feedback was excellent and those who attended really appreciated the information they received. We have sent a follow-up survey to make next year an even bigger success!
Regional Districts and municipalities in any of the Western provinces are welcome to contact WCOWMA to arrange a Septic Sense Workshop in their area.
