NEHA Webinar: Predicting Septic Failures and Prioritizing Interventions
July 26, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join the National Environmental Health Association on July 26, 2:00 p.m. ET for the third Integrating Data to Empower Advancement Series Webinar. Jason Ravenscroft from Marion County, IN will discuss how information from a septic system survey of homes, as well as septic repair permit data, soil geography, and well log information, were used to conduct analyses to determine the factors associated with septic failures and septic issues in Marion County. By using GIS mapping technology, areas of Marion County with high risk factors were identified to help drive future public health interventions. Attendees will learn about environmental factors associated with septic failures, issues homeowners commonly have with their septic system, methods to identify areas of highest risk for septic failures, how to tailor public health interventions to address root causes of septic failures, and how to practice data integration and mapping to drive decisions.
