Septic Tank Maintenance Rebate Program

Printer Friendly
Font Size Extra Large Font Size Large Font Size Default
DPW logo

Septic Tank Maintenance Rebate Program at this time is only for residents in the Santa Margarita River and San Luis Rey River Watersheds.
 

When septic tanks are not maintained properly, they can fail causing waste to back up into homes and yards.  Sewage effluent is a health hazard as well as a pollutant in the watershed.  Protect your home and your watershed by doing routine maintenance for your septic system.

For a limited time, residents in the Santa Margarita River and San Luis Rey River Watersheds can take advantage of a free training program to learn about septic system maintenance.  Qualifying residents may even receive a rebate for having your system inspected and pumped, if needed.

Please do the following items in the following order to start:

  1. Read the "Septic System Rebate Program Rules"
  2. Take the Septic System Education and Outreach Questionnaire "Pre-Survey" - (Sept. 2011)
  3. View the Septic "Tank Rebate Program" presentation
  4. Take the Septic System Education and Outreach Questionnaire "Post-Survey" - (Sept. 2011)
