Main areas


November 4 - Managing Erosion: I know this is common knowledge, but “water runs downhill”. When water runs downhill and has some speed behind it, the moving water can dislodge soil and move that soil causing erosion. Join us for this webinar where we will learn a little about erosion and how we can reduce the effects of erosion; November 17 - Understanding and Maintaining your Well: If you like to drink water, take a bath, and the other things that come along with having water available in the home, join us as we look at the groundwater well and how we get water from the aquifer for use. We will also look at some things that can be done to help protect wells and the groundwater; December 8 -Understanding your On-site Waste System: Do you flush the toilet, wash dishes, wash clothes or do anything that causes water to go down a drain in the house? If so, join us to learn about how this water and solids are managed in a septic system and how to maintain the systems. If you are on municipal sewer system also join us in that we will also discuss how to protect sewer systems. Al events via Zoom @ 10am.  (An equal opportunity, affirmative action, veteran, disability institution).
