Thirty-seven attendees, at the the first of a series of FOR Environmental Committee programs, watched a presentation by Ryan Gerlich, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service that focused on ways to keep septic systems functioning properly and how to perform routine maintenance. Following the two hour program, three lucky winners of a drawing received an aerobic system manual. Ryan also accepted applications for a free septic system pump-out that will be evaluated on a "highest risk system" need. He will contact the owner or owners.
“From chemicals and food scraps to the volume of water that enters a septic system, humans play a large role in the way septic systems operate”. –Ryan Gerlich
The next FOR environmental program is "Bugs that Bite, Sting and Chew", a session about managing troublesome insects that make your life miserable. It happens on Saturday, March 22 from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm at the FOR Community Center.
