2023 SepticSmart Week: Know Your Septic System!

September 18, 9:00 - 10:00 AM

Michigan’s residents rely on over 1.3 million septic systems to treat the wastewater generated in their homes. Proper septic system use and routine care are vital to protecting public health and preserving our highly valued groundwater, lakes, streams, and waterways. Learning about septic systems can help you avoid costly repairs.

The Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy’s (EGLE) Onsite Wastewater Program is kicking off SepticSmart Week with this 1-hour webinar, which will be recorded. While this event is targeted to homeowners served by a septic system, all interested persons are welcomed to attend. Webinar attendees will learn about:

  • the basics of septic systems,
  • tools on how to locate a septic system, and
  • use, operation, and maintenance tips.

You’ll leave this webinar with access to educational materials and a boost in your ability to manage your septic system. Mark your calendar and register today!

The SepticSmart program is a nation-wide initiative to share information on the proper care and maintenance of septic systems and encourage public stewardship in caring for these systems. For more information, visit
