Septic Sense Workshop

Did you know the average person puts 340 litres of sewage through a private sewage system (septic system) every day? For a family of four living in a two-bedroom house, that amounts to 1,360 litres per day and just under half a million litres per year!

Rural property owners are responsible for ensuring their systems operate properly and safely. If you have a septic system on your rural property, you will benefit from attending this workshop. Presenters will teach you how to understand, assess and properly manage your septic system, enabling you to protect your investment in your property and the valuable natural assets associated with your land.

Learn what you can do to properly manage and maintain your septic system. Attend the Septic Sense workshop hosted and presented by Leduc County, with technical expertise provided by the Alberta Onsite Wastewater Management Association (AOWMA) and materials developed by Land Stewardship Centre (LSC).

The workshop will cover:

  • What a septic system is and how it works
  • Regulations
  • Design and installation
  • Appropriate use of your septic system
  • Maintaining your septic system
  • Troubleshooting

The workshop takes place on Monday, Feb. 13 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the Nisku Recreation Centre (606 - 18 Ave. Nisku)
