How well do you know your septic system?

The Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) is offering a free workshop this Thursday (April 18) from 7-9 p.m. at the North Oyster Community Centre at 13467 Cedar Rd. to help you learn more.

During the workshop, you will learn more about types of septic systems, how they work, how to maintain them, what to do when things aren’t working, how proper septic system care is good for you and the environment, and what regulations you need to know about as a property owner. Retired environmental health officer Dave Coombe will walk you through the details and answer questions, along with an expert panel of industry professionals.

This event is free and is brought to you by the CVRD Environmental Initiatives Division. For more information or to pre-register, contact Emily Doyle-Yamaguchi at 250-746-2641 or edy@cvrd.bc.ca.
