If properly designed, constructed and maintained, your septic system can provide long-term, effective treatment of household wastewater. Septic systems should be maintained regularly, based on the size and use of your tank. Pumping and regular maintenance of your system:
extends the life of your tank and lateral lines
protects against groundwater contamination
reduces nutrient loading into nearby waterways - protecting drinking water and wildlife habitat
This rebate can be issued once every 365 days and is delivered as a direct $50 reimbursement to homeowners.

Don't let your septic system get to a point where it fails.
Routine maintence is important to limit homeowner expenses (in the long run) and to help protect local water quality.
Routine septic pump-outs (every 3 - 5 years depending on you tank's size and usage) will cost you around $150 per pump-out.
When a septic tank and lateral field reach a point of failure, it can cost tens-of-thousands of dollars (average $10,000-$50,000) to replace. Use our septic pump-out rebate program to get a "Fresh Flush" to keep your expenses and maintenance on track.
