There will be a workshop regarding homeowner maintenance on March 7 starting at 10 A.M. at the Johnny Calderon County Building in Robstown. This workshop will be free of charge and will feature information on the proper maintenance of septic systems.

This course covers the components of a conventional septic system and drain field. Presentations provide a basic understanding of the operational and maintenance activities for a conventional septic system. The course explains how activities within the home can impact the operation of a septic system.

This course will also explain the limitations of the site itself to accept and provide treatment to the wastewater. The participants will leave this class with a better understanding of the practices required to keep their system working and limit interferences with the enjoyment of their property.

Septic systems are not flush and forget systems! Therefore maintenance is essential to ensure proper function and longevity of your septic system. Attendees will gain a better understanding of how to maintain their septic system to protect the health of their family and the environment.

This course provides answers to the most frequently asked septic system questions, including when to pump out a tank and what can or cannot go down the drain.

Residents who wish to participate in this workshop should RSVP with Rocky Freund at (361) 653-2110 or rfreund@nueces-ra.org.
