Sign Up Now For Health Department’s Popular Well & Septic Seminar For Homeowners

The Kane County Health Department’s free Well and Septic Seminar for Homeowners has become so popular that organizers have added a second session on  Sept. 21 at the University of Illinois Extension Office, 535 S. Randall Road, St. Charles.

Are you a homeowner with a well and/or septic system? Do you know how these systems work? Do you know how to properly care for your well and septic system?

If your answer to one or both of the last two questions is no, it’s a good idea to sign up now. The second seminar has been added to accommodate demand.

Organizers ask that you call ahead and reserve a seat. The Health Department number for well and septic information is 630-444-3040. If you reach a voicemail, please leave your name, phone number, address and reason for calling and we will put you on the list.

One of the reasons the seminars are so popular is that each household that is supported by well water gets a free water sample test kit.

Bring any and all questions as a short Q&A session will be held after the presentation.
