Webinar: Septic System Care Before and After A Storm

Last Updated on January 19, 2022 by Tennille Herron

Floridians are no strangers to hurricanes, with the state facing peak season from August to October. Hurricanes are one of nature’s most powerful storms, producing strong winds, storm surge flooding and heavy rainfall.

When hurricanes dump excessive rain across the state, flooding occurs which can stress your septic tank. For septic systems that utilize pumps, a loss of power can impact the septic system depending on the duration of the power outage. If trees fall on your drainfield, this can also damage septic systems.

Join us for our webinar focused on understanding how to care for your septic system before and after a storm. This webinar, part of the Florida Well Owner Network (FWON), aims to educate Florida residents about well water quality and best management practices to ensure well and groundwater protection.

The webinar will take place on Tuesday, August 10 at 2:00 PM. Registration is required and can be done here: https://ufl.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_sSytYvIVTayRhoo_lDfr0w
