County offers up septic survey

Clallam County Health and Human Services, Environmental Health Section, is conducting a survey of Clallam County homeowners who use onsite septic systems.


The Clallam County HHS Environmental Health Section is mailing the survey to residences that are known to have a septic system. It also is available online on the Clallam County website at


The purpose of the survey is to gather information about how well county residents understand septic system operation and maintenance, measure the effectiveness of Clallam County HHS Environmental Health’s homeowner septic system-oriented education programs and gauge support for future program funding.


“We have been holding in-person classes and mailing the Clean Water Herald septic newsletter to all septic system owners for a number of years,” said Andy Brastad, head of the Environmental Health section. “This is the homeowners’ opportunity to give us feedback on what works for them and what doesn’t.”


Survey responses may be submitted until Aug. 16.


Questions about the survey may be addressed to Sue Waldrip, Environmental Health specialist, at 417-2350 or by e-mail at
