With funding from the Alberta Real Estate Foundation, Land Stewardship Centre and Alberta Onsite Wastewater Management Association, Septic Sense workshops are available free of charge to landowners currently using or looking to install septic systems for their property.
This workshop is for people looking for information about how to responsibly care for a septic system. Check out the following downloadable resources and links:
Septic System FAQs
If you have a septic system you most likely have questions about it. Here are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about septic systems. Remember, the proper operation of your septic system is essential to public and private health, to property values and to the environment.
Septic System Dos and Donts
How you treat your septic system greatly affects its ability to do its job. Educating everyone in your household about what is and is not good for your septic system can help you save money and headaches, prolong the life of your system, safeguard the health of your family, protect your property value and care for the environment.
Septic System Maintenance Record
Use this log sheet to keep a record of the maintenance and inspections of your personal sewage treatment system just like it was your automobile. If you have more than one septic system on your property, be sure to keep a separate record for each system.
Alberta Onsite Wastewater Management Association (AOWMA)
