The Kidder Township Educational Association will host an educational workshop open to the public in June for Kidder Township.

The focus of the workshop will be the care of septic systems and hazardous materials.

The program will last for about an hour with a question and answer session immediately following the workshop.

The proper care and maintenance of a septic system can increase the life of the system as well as cut the cost of repairs. The other main focal point for the educational workshop is the remove and safe disposal of hazardous waste.

The cost for a hazardous waste removal company to come in and safely remove the waste for area residence can range from ten thousand to one hundred thousand dollars. Previous workshops held by the Kidder Township Environmental Advisory Council were on rain gardens and trees in 2008 and then storm water in 2009. They decided to move it to June to try and capture a larger audience. The KTEAC will continue to set up free educational workshops to educate the public on environmentally friendly ways to care for their homes and protect the environment.
