HOW YOU CAN BE A FRIEND OF PUGET SOUND

As a fellow shellfish farmer, we ask that you consider getting involved (if you are not already) to support efforts to keep the marine waters of the state clean and safe for shellfish culture. How?

  • Get involved in local shoreline and growth management planning
  • Maintain your septic system in good working order
  • Collect and dispose of pet waste in areas where it can not wash into surface waters
  • Fence your horses or cows out of streams
  • Recycle used motor oil and dispose of household hazardous wastes at appropriate facilities, not in your yard or septic system.

Septic System Workshop

WSU Extension will be presenting free septic maintenance workshops in partnership with Mason County Public Health.  Every person who attends will receive a coupon, discounting their next septic system pumping or operation and maintenance service. The workshops will run from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
To help homeowners avoid flushing money down the drain, experts will explain what can be flushed safely, how septic systems work and what to do to protect this very valuable feature of every rural home.  The workshop describes the basic components of septic systems and provides participants a chance to ask questions specific to their own needs.  Those attending will receive straightforward information on a variety of topics to help them maintain their septic systems. Attendees will learn what they can do on their own and when to call in the experts. Along with a discount coupon, everyone attending will receive a useful printed manual they can use as a resource at home.
For more information or to register, please call WSU Mason County Extension at (360) 427-9670 x 680 or email Jody.Halia@wsu.edu.
