A Home Water and Septic System Workshop

Did you know that wells and springs provide a large percentage of the water supply to residents of the Pocono counties? In addition, many residents also rely on on-lot septic systems to treat and dispose of their wastewater.

A Home Water and Septic System Workshop, conducted by Penn State Extension, will provide information on how to protect, test and treat private water supplies. Septic system inspection and maintenance will also be discussed. Learn how to protect your health, your property and our shared groundwater and surface water resources.

The Home Water and Septic System Workshop is available on Monday, August 29 from 1:00-3:00 PM and repeated from 6:00-8:00 PM at the Carbon County Emergency Management Center in Nesquehoning, PA.

These workshops are free, however, pre-registration is required. The first 30 registrants for each workshop may have their drinking water tested at no charge. Sample collection instructions will be provided at time of registration. To register for either the Nesquehoning workshops, go to

For more information on the Home Water and Septic Workshops, contact the Penn State Extension Pike County office at 570-296-3400. Ask for Peter Wulfhorst.
