Anne Arundel homeowners can get funds for septic systems

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:  The application must include a site plan showing the size and shape of the property, house location, well and septic system on the property.  You also need to include a legal description of your property, which should be on your property tax bill, or you can look it up online here:  then choose Anne Arundel, Street address, and enter your house number and name of your street without the Rd, St, etc.

For any questions not answered on the web page, contact Kim Roy, Environmental Program Supervisor, at 410-222-7193.
