Virtual Series to Educate on Septic, Well Water Systems

The University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) will host a webinar series to educate Floridians about private wells and septic systems, including routine maintenance and storm preparation.

Nearly 2.6 million septic systems are in operation throughout the state, representing 12% of such systems nationwide, according to the Florida Department of Health.

Yilin Zhuang, UF/IFAS Extension Central District regional specialized agent for water resources, teaches the eight webinars.

Each month’s webinar will explore a different topic for interested homeowners to learn more about their private wells and septic systems.

The monthly webinars are hosted live on Zoom starting Feb. 9 from 2-3 p.m.
