Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District is partnering with a number of local organizations to promote proper care and maintenance of septic systems. Septic system maintenance can help keep homeowners and their neighbors healthy and protect their drinking water and the environment. For homeowners, proper care can also prevent costly repairs or replacement of systems, protect property values, and save water.
As part of our ongoing efforts in the Clackamas River Watershed to protect and improve the water quality we invite you to attend our informative workshop, “Know Your Septic System – Check It, Fix It and Maintain It!”
Our workshop will be held:
Wednesday, April 20, 2016
6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
City of Damascus Council Chambers
19920 SE Highway 212, Damascus
Join us for this FREE workshop where you will have an opportunity to:
- Learn how septic systems work
- Learn how to properly maintain a septic system
- Recognize signs of septic system failure
- Become familiar with County codes and permits for septic systems

Workshop participants may bring a sample of their private well water to be screened for nitrates. Knowing what is in your water can impact your health. Directions for collecting water samples can be found here.
