The existing septic system must be inspected by a qualified professional who provides you with an inspection report. In order to qualify for the reimbursement funds, the report must state failure or imminent failure.
Please note that if inspection documents state the system has failed, the cost of the inspection may be included in the total project costs to repair or replace the system and may be reimbursed. If the system does not fail inspection, costs are not eligible for reimbursement.
*Inspections range in costs
Most inspections of tanks require a pump-out.
*The cost of the pump-out is considered a maintenance item and is NOT eligible for reimbursement.
