Are you eligible?
Upgraded septic systems may soon be required in some areas of the state. For a limited time, homeowners near certain Outstanding Florida Springs can save up to $10,000 to offset the cost of upgrading a conventional septic system to include nitrogen reducing enhancements.
Six steps to better septic.
1. Check your eligibility. Enter your home address on the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s map to check your eligibility.
2. Find a registered septic tank contractor. Look on the Department of Health website to find a contractor near you.
3. Choose an approved system. Make sure your septic system contractor is familiar with the new denitrifying septic systems that are approved for use in Florida.
4. How do I apply? Your contractor handles all the paperwork. They will file your application with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and they must receive approval before any work can begin.
