We keep a close eye on the septic system news across the nation and have noticed septic pump incentive programs popping up across the nation. Most recently, we’ve noticed that Missouri has launched a “Get Pumped” program to help incentivize residents to maintain their systems with a septic pumpout. The program allows homeowners to benefit from cost share with aims to improve water quality and pollution from poorly maintained tanks.
Florida has attempted to amend some of the issues polluting our waterways on a county level by passing House Bill 1263, which puts responsibility on the county to regulate pumpout requirements via special incentive programs. We have noticed mixed feelings in response to this legislation, despite the awareness it could raise.
Perhaps a “get pumped” incentive of our own would encourage Southwest Florida septic tank pumpouts? It could be a win-win for both homeowners with septic systems and county governments.
If you’re not sure you can wait for a local incentive program, sign up for our newsletter and get a $25.00 off coupon for your first septic pumpout from Crews Environmental.
While some continue to debate the pros and cons of septic vs. sewer, when it comes to cost comparison of city sewer vs. septic systems – septic always wins.
While some may believe that all septic systems process wastewater in the exact same way, the reality is that not all septic systems are created equal.
We recently noticed this Naples Daily News commentary that was published from one of the readers on June 23rd. The commentary addressed the newly imposed septic legislation (House Bill 1263) which allows counties the option to adopt septic inspection and pumpout requirements every 3-5 years.
Tropical Storm Debby dropped nearly eight inches of rain throughout Southwest Florida this past week. The record rainfall caused riding tides in the Gulf and Caloosahatchee River.
