Travel Trailer Waste Disposal - Now that the camping season is nearly over, remember to properly dispose of your black water tank waste at a designated RV sanitary dump station. Improper disposal of waste contaminates the ground and our water, and leaves the "great outdoors" - not so great!

Properly close abandoned wells on your property. They can act as conduits for contamination of our groundwater. Call the Calhoun County Health Department at 269-969-6341 for more info.
