The application period is now open for the Septic System Pump Out Program, a rebate program for residents who have theirseptic tanks pumped out by a licensed hauler every five years. As a best management practice, residents are recommended to inspect theirseptic system yearly, and to pump out their system every five years. Inspecting and pumping septic systems is important for efficient operation. A well-maintained septic system protects the groundwater and drinking water supply and is less likely to break down and require costly repair.
Rebates will be available for homeowners who pump-out their septic systems 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 served basis due to funding availability.
