Event description

Description

Rural residents face different challenges than their urban neighbors when managing residential utilities, particularly when it comes to the water going through their homes. This two-part workshop series will aid rural residents in learning about different types of water wells and septic systems, how they work, and how to manage these systems.

This workshop series will take place at the Three Hills Community Center March 13 from 5:00pm - 9:00pm and March 27 from 4:30pm - 9:00pm. Registration will include individually tailored, hands-on sessions, dinner and refreshments. The cost is $20/person to attend one of the sessions or $30/person to attend both sessions.

The first session, taking place on March 13, is the Working Well Workshop and will cover the basics of groundwater, water well construction, common well problems, contamination risks, importance of well reclamation, and best management practices.

The next session, taking place on March 27, is Septic Sense. Topics will include what a septic system is and how it works, regulations, design and installation, appropriate use of your septic system, maintaining your septic system, and troubleshooting.

In partnership with the Alberta Government's Working Well Program, the Land Stewardship Center, and the Alberta Onsite Wastewater Management Association, Kneehill County is hosting this interactive workshop series to assist rural residents with effectively and efficiently managing water on their property to aid in greater economic and environmental sustainability.

As handout packages will be tailored to attendees, pre-registration is required to attend these events.

If your desired ticket type is sold out please contact the Kneehill County office (403-443-5541) as more may become available.
