Owasco Lake Septic System Inspection Grant – 2018

The Cayuga County Soil and Water Conservation District has been awarded grant funds through New York State to conduct sanitary code inspections on properties bordering Owasco Lake during 2018. The District will inspect the septic systems of approximately 70 residences on properties bordering Owasco Lake free of charge. As a part of this program promoting water quality and properly functioning septic systems, we are recommending that property owners receiving a free sanitary code inspection use that savings to have their septic tank pumped out and inspected after the sanitary code inspection has taken place. A list of certified septic tank pumpers from the Cayuga County Health Department website will be provided at the time of the septic system sanitary code inspection.

Only sanitary code inspections will be cost-shared, not property transfer inspections.

The inspections will be provided free of charge on a first come, first serve basis.

Please contact Valerie Horning at the Cayuga County SWCD at 315-252-4171, ext 3, or e-mail at vhorning@cayugaswcd.org to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions.
