Septic System Maintenance Rebate

Note: Due to popular demand, we are no longer taking new applications to the septic maintenance rebate program. We will continue to accept claims from those with a valid preapproval until the end of the year. Please check back in March to learn about rebates offered in 2017.

Septic system maintenance includes regular examination of each component from the tank to the field to determine that it is structurally sound and functioning and that mechanical and electrical parts are in good working order. The components can then be cleaned and repaired as necessary.

For the third year, the RDN is offering rebates to help you maintain your septic system. To date, this program has given residents more than $80,000 towards the maintenance of their septic systems.

In 2016, the RDN is offering rebates on:

  1. Up to $500 for a Maintenance Assessment*
  2. Up to $200 for installing Risers*
  3. Up to $200 for installing an Effluent Filter*
*The RDN will provide up to 75% of eligible expenses. Parts and labour included. Works must be completed by an Authorized Person. Note: a septic tank pump-out is not eligible for a rebate.

  1. Maintenance Assessment - must:
    • Provide a diagram of all system components
    • Estimate tank size
    • Provide repair recommendations
    • Provide a schedule for future maintenance
    • Follow an approved report template
    • Be submitted to the RDN
  2. Risers - provide surface access to buried components. Risers make future pumping, inspection, and maintenance much easier. If you have risers, you have little to no digging to do hereafter
  3. Effluent Filter - can prolong the life of your system by keeping solids out of the distribution field
