Alpharetta & Fulton County Offer Septic Tank Workshop

Released September 07, 2017 08:16 AM

The City of Alpharetta and Fulton County will offer a free informational workshop for residents of North Fulton who live in homes with a septic tank. The workshop will be on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at the Alpharetta City Hall, 2 Park Plaza 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Septic tank problems can cause big issues for you and for our waterways. Many of our North Fulton streams have water quality problems related to bacteria.  Did you know that a failing septic system can also affect nearby streams?  The good news is that most septic tank problems can be prevented.  Attend the workshop and get the facts. 


Topics will include: 

•        Basics of how a septic tank system works

•        Do’s and don’ts on what you can put down the drain

•        Maintenance

•        When to call a professional


We encourage you to attend if your home has a septic tank.  Written materials will be provided to keep for future reference.  To register for this class, go to Eventbrite at or by calling (678) 297-6200.  For more information contact Terry Porter at (678) 297-6200 or
