The Texas Water Resources Institute and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service are offering a free, online education event about septic system maintenance for Matagorda County homeowners.
The event will be from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 19 and will be held online via Zoom. The event link will be sent out to all registered attendees the week before the event.
Workshop presenters will provide a basic understanding of the operational and maintenance activities of a septic system and explain how activities within the home impact septic systems. Presentations will cover the treatment processes, health and safety considerations, how to inspect, care for and feed the system, and general maintenance procedures.
