Septic Sense

Septic Sense has been developed to provide landowners access to the information, resources and support that can help them responsibly manage their septic systems.

What’s New

The most recent round of workshops wrapped up at the end of March 2017 and we do not have any workshops scheduled at this time. We are working closely with the program partners and government to develop options and source funding that will enable us to continue the program in the coming months.

Keep checking the website and sign up for our Grassroots News e-newsletter to receive Septic Sense announcements and updates.

A Bit of History

Following a highly successful pilot program in 2015, with funding support from Alberta Innovates – Energy and Environment Solutions, Land Stewardship Centre (LSC), in partnership with the Alberta Onsite Wastewater Management Association (AOWMA), offered Septic Sense workshops January through March 2017. Here is the list of workshops scheduled for winter 2017.

What You Can Expect at a Workshop

Workshop presenters will teach you how to understand, assess and properly manage your septic system, enabling you to protect your investment in your property and the valuable natural assets associated with your land. If you have a septic system on your rural property, you will benefit from attending a workshop.
