Cllr John Browne (FG) has reminded local householders, that February 1, 2013 is the deadline for registration of septic tank/domestic waste water system.
“You will not be able to register after that, and if your system fails you will not be able to apply for remediation grants,” the local area representative said. “It is not a good idea to ignore the deadline as this will create additional annoyance for homeowners.”
He went on to say that there are grants available and those in a position to avail of them, should do so.
“There are remediation grants available if your system fails the inspection,” he added. “Household Income up to €50,000 will attract a maximum grant of €4,000 or 80 per cent of the cost, whichever is the lower, and those on income between €50,001 to €75,000 will qualify for a maximum grant of €2,500 or 50 per cent of the cost - whichever is the lower. I would also like to take the opportunity to draw readers’ attention to the ‘Protect Our Water’ advertisement in this week’s publication.”
