Each September the McPherson County Department of Planning, Zoning & Environment brings awareness to wells and wastewater systems that are privately owned as well as focusing on the condition and up keep of the systems. The 2016 theme is “Love & Happiness with your System”. Privately owned wells and wastewater systems affect the health of the families, neighbors and the environment where they are located. The department provides information on these systems to help citizens understand the importance of good habits with using water efficiently and what is needed to keep a wastewater system correctly working. Information can be found at www.mcphersoncountyks.us or email Carissa McCuen at [email protected] for questions you may have about your system in McPherson County.
