Substantial Survey of Septic System Owners in Howard County to Be Conducted by Department of Public Works
Even well-maintained sewage treatment plants can release harmful pollutants into the environment. It is for this reason that the county launched its sewer connection loan program. The program is financed by the capital project S-6699 and supports property owners with the costs of connection to the district’s public sanitary sewer system. Converting a sewage system into a public sewer system improves water quality, the habitat for fish and wildlife, and the ability to use water, including for recreational purposes.
This week, DPW will be sending information to complete the survey to approximately 1,450 residents who the county records show may have an active septic system. To encourage survey participation, respondents will automatically be entered into a raffle to win one of 15 Amazon gift cards valued at $ 100. The raffle for the gift card will take place on or before February 15, and potential winners will be notified by mail on or around March 1.
Residents who live within the planned coverage area and have an active septic system, but by 18.313-6125 or email [email protected].
The survey is funded by the S-6699 Capital Project. If you have any questions or would like more information about this survey, please contact Lisa Brightwell, Public Works Customer Service, at 410-313-3440 or email [email protected].
