The Septic System Pump-Out program is a rebate program for residents who have their septic tanks pumped out by a licensed hauler every five years. As a best management practice, residents are recommended to inspect their septic system yearly, and to pump out their system every five years. Inspecting and pumping septic systems promotes their effectiveness and longevity, provides a reduction of nutrient leaching over time, and protects our local groundwater and drinking supplies.
Rebates will be available for approximately 667 homeowners who pump-out their septic systems after January 1, 2018, in the amount of $75 regardless of the amount billed for the pump-out service. Residents are encouraged to apply for the rebate on a first come first serve basis due to funding availability.
