Jasper Co. Health Department grants help clean, repair or replace septic tanks



Jasper County has grant money to offer those needing septic tanks cleaned out or repaired. And some will even be replaced. The grant  pays up to $3 thousand dollars of the cost of a replacement and half the cost of tank maintenance.
The Jasper County Health Department received the grant from the EPA and Department of Natural Resources. 

The goal of the grant is to keep E-coli out of Spring River and leaking septic tanks can be a source of contamination. The $127, 000  dollar grant still has funds available.  

So far the Spring River 319 grant has helped pay for 19 septic tank pumpings and at least four replacements.  One homeowner called it a blessing because the back flow from an old septic tank meant a home he purchased could not be used.  

Two pumping companies work with the health department to complete the work.  Inspections are required before and during the process.  Homeowners can read about the qualifications and the application process at the Jasper County  Health Department's web site click here for a link. Then click on the 319 grant icon.
