TheSeptic System Pump Out Programis a rebate program for Frederick County, Maryland residents who have theirseptic 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 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.
