Starting February 20, 2007, a property owner can submit a grant application to the Anne Arundel County Department of Health to repair or upgrade their septic system. Funds for these grants come from the "flush tax" or the Bay Restoration Fund, and the county has enough funds to pay for about 130 systems. Projects involving the repair or upgrade of an existing septic system in the Chesapeake Bay Critical Area will be ranked the highest priority and, if funds are available, recommended for immediate approval. For more information and an application to fill out and mail, see: http://www.aahealth.org/a2z
