talked to a friend that looked into it

Seen it before......they pay for a holding tank and pump in the tank.....Owner responsible for regular tank, drain field etc. they have a 5 year right to enter property to inspect. THis is a cheap way for them to make people upgrade whole system and the state to have the right to monitor waste on private property.......
Ain't notthing FREE!

--THis Cockamanina Idea Must be Qulled & Quick --Quick Now--Ya got failing septic in a Community that Votes NO to Sewer & then Some Apply for Free Septic Upgrades --Get it Done & then the State won't force Sewers on Residents , because of Funds used to Upgrade a Few inbetween Septics

--The State needs to fund the Money to Sewer insallation to ALL the Residents , money Should be used as A Reduced Installation rate --If one Septic is bad & all are the Same Age in the Subdivision ALL are Bad ---Been there Seen That ---

--Where is Sen. John Astle ,DEL. Va Claggett ----on this Plan--

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Communities do not have the option to vote on a county sewer project. counties install them and the residents have to hook up.
the projects are 50% funded by the federal government. via EPA grants.
the other 50% is paid by the homeowners. with all costs financed for long term & inexpensively by the county governments. the homeowners need no money out of pocket for this. the state contributes nothing.

although individual owners can refuse to hook up. it is seldom done because if a homeowner refuses to hook up. he will become inelligable for the 50% subsidy from the federal government in a year & no new septic permits will be granted in that area. the homeowner will be forced to hook up at a much higher rate & no financing or subsidy will be available. he will have to cone up with the cash out of pocket. in my area this runs about 12,000 to 15,000 out of a homeowners pocket, for a non subsidized hookup.

many homeowners live in an area where sewer systems will never be available. this is a real good deal for those without septic systems, or those with failing septic systems that live in these areas. a properly working septic system with BAT is much better than no system or a failing system, especially for the price
