A Lowell homeowner residing about a mile from Beaver Lake had a septic system that was more than 35 years old. The concrete tank had collapsed, which allowed sewage to surface on the ground in the yard near the home. Rainfall events and normal household water usage caused the pooling of sewage on the surface of the yard over the tank, and this overflow would runoff across the street toward Beaver Lake.
This homeowner was eligible for both grant and loan funds through our Septic Remediation Program, so the design and installation expense of about $7,000 cost the homeowner just $700!
