The maximum amount of assistance for any one private sewer lateral replacement or repair is 50% of the approved cost up to a maximum reimbursement of $4,000. Only the cost to repair or replace existing defective laterals will be eligible. The cost to extend or to upsize a lateral to increase the capacity or for new development is not eligible. Not all applications will be approved.
A maximum of one grant application will be considered for approval for an individual property every five (5) years.
The property owner is responsible for notifying their selected contractor that their entire lateral must pass a video inspection (even if only a partial replacement was performed) in order to be eligible for reimbursement. All work shall be inspected by a District inspector prior to back fill. Payment shall be made to the property owner after a copy of the paid-in-full invoice is submitted to the district for the work preformed.
All work must be performed by a licensed contractor and in accordance with District Specifications.
