    https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/9100324960185525761

    Note: This is a webinar broadcast of a live event being held in Lansing, Michigan. 

    Join us to hear about a recent study (Verhougstraete et al. 2015) that characterized fecal pollution across the lower peninsula of Michigan. The researchers used source-tracking markers to sample 64 river systems in Michigan for E. coli and the human fecal bacteria B. thetaiotaomicron. Advances in source-tracking allow water scientists to track down the origin of non-point pollution more accurately than ever before. 

    Agenda 
    11:30-12:30 Presentation by study authors Dr. Marc Verhougstraete, Dr. Joan Rose, Dr. David Hyndman, and Dr. Sherry Martin 

    12:30-1:00 Q&A session

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

    Septic Systems: Insight Into Your Onsite System

    April 20, 2015
    1:30 - 3:30 p.m.

    Approximately 43% of Michigan residents rely on onsite wastewater (septic) systems to handle waste water from their homes and businesses. That's over 1.2 million septic systems in use in Michigan today and it's estimated that at least 10% of these are in some level of failure.

    This live webinar will discuss what a septic system is, how it works, the best management practices to protect the system and more.

    This live webinar will include the presentation by a Health Department sanitarian supervisor with 29 years of septic and well experience, and an engineer from the DEQ.  A live question-and-answer session via the chat box will be available.

    Good morning!


    The MEHA Golf Outing attracted 8 foursomes.  It certainly appeared that everyone had a good time!  The wonderful course, Marywood in Battle Creek, that John Johnson discovered for us four years ago, has provided a VERY nice location for our outing.  The great price, several prizes, and a beautiful day helped us to raise $850.00 for the MEHA Endowment Fund.


    The 10th annual is already in the works for 2015.
