VIRGINIA, Thomas Jefferson SWCD – The Thomas Jefferson Soil and Water Conservation District (TJWSDC) is offering financial incentives to homeowners to maintain, fix, upgrade or replace their septic systems. The benefits of doing so are numerous and hard to pass up.
Homeowners who live in parts of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Nelson and Amherst Counties who are dealing with a failing septic system, are eligible to have at least half of the cost for repair or replacement covered. In some cases, up to 80 percent of their costs will be covered. In addition to these failing systems, financial assistance is also available for septic pumpouts that help maintain functioning systems and prolong their expected lifespan.
“But not everyone is aware we are offering these incentives,” said Anne Coates, District Manager of the TJSWCD.
