Living in the Mountains: Understanding Wells, Septic Systems & Radon
January 31, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Sponsored by NC Cooperative Extension and the Transylvania County Library, Living in the Mountains is a five-part educational series exploring the unique challenges and opportunities of living in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
Part Two: Understanding Wells, Septic Systems & Radon
Transylvania County Environmental Health will deliver a presentation on septic tank systems and drinking water wells including a quick guide to help folks understand their basic functions and maintenance requirements. This information may be especially important to those who have been served by a municipal sewer system and/or public water system in the past. Bring your questions and we’ll sort through the myths and urban legends to provide you with the most up-to-date information available. Erin Massey, N.C. Cooperative Extension Family and Consumer Sciences Agent, will also discuss radon in your home including radon testing methods and mitigation options.
We hope you’ll join us for the remainder of the series:
