The “Fresh Flush” Septic Pumpout Rebate is currently on hold as we transition to a new funding source. We have not set a relaunch date for this program at this time, and will not be releasing any rebate materials until the funding has been received. Once the program is back on-line we will continue to offer the $50 pumpout rebate to qualified homeowners that live within the James River watershed. Please continue to check back for updates and stay tuned to our newsletter and social media channels for program announcements.
— Sincerely, Brent Stock (JRBP Project Manager)


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.
