Proper Care & Maintenance of Wells & Septic Systems – Workshop

April 17 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Tuesday April 17, 2018 – 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM – Lansdowne Community Hall, 1 Jessie St. Lansdowne ON


Groundwater is a limited resource and the primary source of drinking water for most rural residents. Compared to other regions, groundwater in eastern Ontario is highly susceptible to pollution because of a relatively high water table, very thin soils, and highly fractured bedrock environments.

Rural residents are encouraged to maintain private wells and septic systems throughout the year to reduce groundwater vulnerability on their property.

Event Details
This event will be an interactive discussion-based workshop including an information session featuring speakers from the following organizations:

Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority;
Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit;
Public Health Ontario; and
Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change

Speakers will be touching on important topics such as groundwater water quality and vulnerability in eastern Ontario, proper use and maintenance of private well and septic systems for rural property owners, and best management practices.

Following the information session, there will be time for landowners to fill out a free property self-assessment booklet. Developed in partner with the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority, this booklet aims to:

1. Be a resource for determining risks to drinking water and vulnerable groundwater on your property;

2. Outline best practices for the operation and maintenance of your well and septic system;

3. Specify contact information and additional material for reference; and

4. Provide well and septic system tracking sheets and a space to keep important records all in one place.

Filling out the booklet is voluntary and confidential. No information from participants will be collected.

Registration for this event also enters you into a draw to win great prizes like a free water quality test for your well!

Please register each individual planning to attend separately (e.g. two people attending would require two ticket orders).

Seats are limited, so get your tickets early!
