The Septic System Pump-Out Programis 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 forhomeowners who pump-out their septic systems starting in 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.
Please note: A rebate is only available once every five years per address.
County Executive Jan Gardner announced the Septic System Pump-Out program on April 5, 2018 during a Public Information Briefing.
