SEPTIC PROGRAMS: OVERVIEW

In the New York City Watershed West of the Hudson River (parts of Delaware, Greene, Schoharie, Sullivan or Ulster Counties), many homeowners are eligible for funding assistance to meet this public health and water quality requirement.

Questions about program eligibility, reimbursable expenses and other issues may be directed to the

CWC Technical Staff at 845-586-1400. Please understand that CWC staff members cannot recommend engineering firms or contractors.

Under New York State Health Department regulations, homeowners not served by municipal sewage treatment systems are responsible for maintaining individual septic systems that correctly treat and dispose of sewage (wastewater from kitchens, bathrooms and other sources of indoor plumbing). In most areas, homeowners with collapsed septic tanks or clogged leach fields must pay for the installation of new on-site wastewater treatment systems, as well as for periodic pump-outs to maintain the efficiency of those systems.
