Septic Systems Information
Most authorities say to have your septic system pumped out at least every three years. But that could vary quite a bit, depending on how many people your system needs to support, water usage habits and other factors.
For a comprehensive, well written "user manual" for septic systems, click here and you'll be taken to Pipeline, the National Environmental Services Center newsletter dedicated to wastewater issues in small communities.
Our Aquatic Tax District provides partial funding for septic tank and holding tank pump-outs for those with riparian rights. After your system has been pumped out and the bill paid, send a copy of the bill to Kevin Walsh, 730 Fay Road, Syracuse, NY 13219.
The rebate will be for 50% up to $100 of the cost for mainland properties and $150 for island properties. Rebates are limited to one rebate per calendar year per property.
