FREDERICK, MD – Applications are still being accepted for the 2022 Septic Pump-Out Rebate Program to encourage property owners to have their septic systems pumped out. The Septic Pump-Out Rebate Program offers a $75 rebate to homeowners who pump-out their septic systems after January 1, 2021. Residents are encouraged to apply for the rebate on a first come first served basis due to funding availability. Homeowners are only eligible for a rebate once every five years.
A properly maintained septic system benefits property owners in several ways and will be less likely to break down and require costly repairs. Maintaining your septic system protects your home investment—when selling your home, your septic system must be in good working order. Maintaining your septic system also protects the groundwater and your drinking water supply.
