BQRAP offers Septic Stewardship Program

mail-out-flyer-2013-webThe Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan (RAP) is implementing a Septic Stewardship Program for homeowners with shoreline property on the Bay of Quinte. This is a voluntary educational program providing homeowners with a free checkup of their septic system (tank and leaching bed), and helpful advice on the care and maintenance of the system.

This program pays to have your septic tank/holding tank pumped out as part of the checkup, this is a savings of 200.00 – 250.00 dollars.

Our septic team will provide advice and suggestions to improve your septic system operations, adding to the longevity of the system. A failing septic system can add excess phosphorus to nearby waterbodies causing algal blooms and excess plant growth. As well, bacteria from a failing septic system can cause localized health impacts for homeowners and their neighbours. Participants in the program will receive a personalized report on their system and free water efficiency devices.

The septic team can also provide homeowners with best management practices for shorelines and wells.
