Operation and Maintenance (O&M) program
In January of 2015, Ohio Department of Health (ODH) adopted new private sewage laws (Ohio Administrative Code: Chapter 3701-29). These new laws mandate every private septic system also known as a sewage treatment system (STS) have an operation permit in order to be monitored on a regular basis. This will ensure STS are working correctly and not polluting the environment.

In Fayette County there are over 6,000 homes and businesses that use STS to treat wastewater. Because of the large number of systems in Fayette County, initial assessments will be completed by township with a little over 3 townships per year being added onto the O&M program starting in mid 2016.

August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month
Submitted by Jeannie Bihl, R.N.

Imagine that scientists had told us that someone had invented a Wonder Product! Let me tell you about this product! This wonder product is available to every baby born on earth. It's exactly the perfect nutrition for all infants and even has added antibodies so your baby is less likely to get sick. What's more - Wonder Product is available everyehwere you go, and requires no storage or delivery! You don't even have to leave your house to get it (so imagine the gas you would save).

Wonder Product can reduce your chances of getting diabetes, of being obese, of getting certain cancers, and it's even been proven to kill cancer cells in a petri-dish. Wonder Product increases your chances of a higher I.Q. and it has the right amount of fat, carbohydrates and protein for your specific age.

And don't worry - doctors recommend it! We even have approval from many Health Associations!

Are you someone who is conscious about the environment? Do you check out the labels on your products to see what's in them? No need to worry! Wonder Product is completely organic, it's green and environmentally friendly! There is no waste!! And you will never have to worry about Wonder Product being recalled.

And the best part of all is it is FREE!! This amazing product is human breast milk! August is Breastfeeding Awareness month and all moms are encouraged to give it a try since it is healthy for mom and baby! If anyone is having a baby and thinking about breastfeeding please call the FCHD at 740-335-5910 and ask to speak to Jeannie Bihl, R.N., IBCLC or Charity Penrod, CLC, for help with breastfeeding, classes, information on pumpking or going back to work! WIC wants to emphasize the importance of working together with family, friends, employers, healthcare providers and childcare providers to empower and support a woman's decision to breastfeed!
