The Red River Basin Commission’s North Chapter is giving people the chance to learn about septic tank usage.
The organization is hosting Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship regional supervisor of environmental compliance and enforcement Donna Smiley for a presentation at the RM of East St. Paul office (3021 Bird’s Hill Rd.) on Oct. 24 at 7 p.m.
Smiley will be presenting on the pros and cons of septic tank usage in rural and urban developments while also discussing the benefits of a public utility system in both environmental and economic senses.
By holding the meeting, the commission hopes to encourage conversation and networking about the issue.
The public is invited to attend the meeting, but is encouraged to RSVP with the commission’s outreach co-ordinator, Kaylee Mestdagh, at Kaylee@redriverbasincommission.org or 204-982-7250.
