Comprehensive Onsite Wastewater Management

Date: March 12, 2015 - February 13, 2015
Location: Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences Building, 1066 Bogue Street, East Lansing, MI 48824

A fresh supply of drinking water and disposal of wastewater are two important systems in any building. Many businesses, schools and offices have been forced to close when the water system is not working properly. Protecting the system is important to its optimum use and longevity as well as to the protection of health and the environment. Yet, some people may not know the proper use and maintenance of these systems. Still, more do not know what to do if there is a problem or system failure.

The program will take place March 12-13 in Chatham, Gaylord, Grand Rapids, East Lansing and Novi. Two sessions are offered at each location:

  • Key Ingredients of a Good Onsite Treatment System (designed for providers new to the field or those who would like a refresher)
  • Onsite Wastewater Treatment Design & Management (for the more experienced professional who has completed the “Key Ingredients” course above)

CSE and CEC credits are available through the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). This training will allow attendees to obtain up to 14 CSEs (7 CSEs per day). For the March 13 training, 0.6 CECs are also available. Reimbursement for training costs are available through MDEQ for most septage haulers. Discounts are available for multiple attendees from the same company or agency.
