Published DateALTON — How septic systems work, their limitations and eventual replacement, especially in sensitive waterfront locations, are among topics to be shared in a free evening workshop titled Septic Sense Tuesday, June 25, at 6:30 p.m. at the Gilman Library.
"Anyone who buys, owns and sells homes on septic systems will not want to miss this important and informative event," said Tina Maxfield, co-owner of Maxfield Real Estate, Inc., which is jointly hosting the free public forum with the Lake Winnipesaukee Watershed Association. "Good water quality is the economic life blood of the Lakes Region and it has an enormous impact on human health. We all must do our part to safeguard our ground water, streams, ponds and lakes against pollution,'' says Maxfield.
Attendees can expect to take home useful information on maintenance and extension of system life, signs of system failure, and who to contact for consultation, design and installation when system replacement becomes necessary, Ms. Maxfield said. Gary Spaulding, with the Granite State Designers & Installers Association, will give a special slide presentation highlighting difficult site installations and showcase several different septic system technologies available to homeowners today.
