Have you had issues with your sanitary sewer service line such as tree roots and/or deteriorating service line (pipe) condition causing sewer backups?
In 2024, Township property owners have an opportunity to receive up 50% of the cost (with a maximum of $5,000) in financial assistance through a grant administered by the Township. Property owners can contact a water and sewer contractor of their choice to evaluate, for a fee, the service line and provide a quote to repair/replace the line. The evaluation work (cleaning and televising) can be included as a reimbursement expense provided the property owner completes the repair/replacement following the evaluation.
A permit will need to be obtained from the Township. The 50% reimbursement (up to $5,000) will be paid directly to the contractor, by the Township, once they have submitted a copy of the homeowner’s invoice to the Township. The contractor will invoice the property owner the balance of the amount due.
Grants will be on a first come, first serve basis, until the total grant amount of $40,000 provided by the Metropolitan Council of Environmental Services (MCES) is exhausted. Please check with the Township on the balance of the grant funding if you are making your decision to move forward with the repair/replacement based upon 50% (up to $5,000) grant assistance.
If you have any questions regarding the program, contact the Town’s Public Works Director, Dale Reed, at 651-747-2777 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
